Guys, can you please give me a collection of some popular Indian folktales? I want to gift it to my children who love to read books. Classic English Fairytales are the only ones that they have, but I feel being an Indian they must have all the knowledge of the Indian Folktales.

The stories of Jataka Tales are mainly about past incarnations of Buddha and are meant to teach the values of self-sacrifice, honesty, morality and other didactic values to a common person. They are a total of 547 in number.
