    This video, produced by the Zimmer Discovery Children's Museum in Los Angeles, is designed for 4-10 year-olds and aims to promote the history and traditions of different cultures. The video's female Storyteller recounts three stories adapted from Chasidic (Eastern European Jewish), Native American and East Indian folktales, each of which features a young child who succeeds by being generous, tenacious, moral and brave. The Storyteller thus promotes positive values, education and cultural diversity in an entertaining format for young viewers.
