- Fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen and The Grimm brothers:
These are animated fairy tales online in French, Spanish, Italian and Russian. They include information about the author, audio, games and colouring pages with the main characters from the fairy tales:
- Brementown Musicians:
This site is in English, French and Italian
- Red boots for Christmas:
This Xmas online tale is in English, Spanish and possibly Chinese.
- The Symphony of Friendship:
This is presented as a Christmas present to all the children in the world. It is an illustrated story about how two enemies become friends through music. The story can be read in English, Japanese, German, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Korean, Russian or Italian. Please note that some of these sections are still under construction and the foreign characters do not necessarily all display properly-certainly the case for French and Spanish. Although it would require adapting, this could be used as a stimulus for a lovely Christmas project http://www.mandala.co.jp/B9/indexe.htm
