“It doesn’t matter if it’s the familiar “Billy Goats Gruff,” cautionary lessons in dental hygiene (“The Girl Who Loved Sugar”), or economic realities (“I Found a Quarter”), Mark Binder is a master at spinning old tales and everyday events linked to childhood into storytelling gold. Here, “The Little Wolf Cub” learns the secret of the pack, an African princess paves the way for girl power, thanks to a smart bunny (“How Rabbit…”), and a wizard persuades a boy with “Really (Really) Bad Manners” to change his ways. Two stories are especially touching, and telling: In “Jody Listens,” a little girl may not talk much, but she hears “the sound of the bees” and “the wind in the leaves” and she makes herself heard when it counts. And in “Why I Tell Stories,” Binder illustrates his unexpectedly poignant answer with a child’s magic-touched memory of a visit to a candy store.”
