A perfect primer on humanity, Tales from the Times will introduce young readers to people and places that captivate the mind.

With stories from Randy Kennedy, William Grimes, Charlie LeDuff, Nicholas D. Kristof, Lisa Belkin, Jane Gross, and many more favourite New York Times reporters and columnists.
