The objective of children services is to collect materials on intellectual, language, social and educational developments which are the form of printed and non-printed. Myanmar folk tales give the readers delighted pleasure and entertainment as well as knowledge on Myanmar customs and culture. Some Myanmar folk tales are translated by other languages. The folk tales contribute to children to understand other nation's cultures, to respect other’s customs and to promote their knowledge. Tales are the bridges to connect and understand the good wills of one nation to another. We have Asian and Southeast Asian folk tales mainly and some from other countries, which is a tool to exchange the cultural customs and civilization of our neighboring nations.
