Old Stories for Children

Padyab Publication in Tehran has published a 4-volume collection of old stories for children.
Edited by Mahmoud Karimpour, the collection is dubbed “Barg-e Derakhtan-e Sabz” (Leaves of Green Trees) after a verse by Sa’di of Shiraz, the eminent 13th century Persian poet, ISNA reported on its Persian website.
The first volume of the collection is named “Kelileh & Demneh,” the Persian name and translation of Panchatantra, an ancient Indian collection of interrelated animal fables in Sanskrit verse and prose compiled by Hindu scholar Pandit Vishnu Sharma around 3rd century BC, based on older oral traditions. 
Poet and journalist Hassan Goharpour has abridged Kelileh & Demneh in 24 pages in the first volume. The book is illustrated by Maryam Zabihi and contains three stories: “Reveries of a Simple-Minded Man”, “Fate of the Greedy” and “The Naïve Camel.”   
The second volume is “Marzban-Nama” which is simplified by Mohsen Rahbar-Torbati in 24 pages and illustrated by Zabihi.
