Zomo the Rabbit: A Trickster Tale from West Africa

Zomo the Rabbit: A Trickster Tale from West Africa - Gerald McDermott,  Tim Peck (Editor) 11/27/13 ** Another in the series of trickster tales in use in my classroom right now. Trickster tales are such a fabulous resource for helping kids understand how cultures are represented in literature. We can see different tricksters working in different settings enacting essentially the same stories. Such fun! (and it keeps us away from the overdone comparison units that use Cinderella - also fun, but well-worn.)
