Saira Shah Introduces Teaching Stories, written by Idries Shah, to Paris Schoolchildren

Award-winning documentary maker Saira Shah was at UNESCO in Paris over the weekend reading some of her father's stories as part of an international cultural event.

Idries Shah wrote the stories for Saira and her siblings when they were young. Now Saira's helping make them available for children around the world. They're beautifully illustrated – and hugely entertaining. And they follow a tradition of using fables and folk tales to impart wisdom – Teaching Stories as Shah dubbed them.

ISF has published six children's books so far. And there are more to come.
