Angels, Prophets, Rabbis & Kings
from the Stories of the Jewish People
Waldorf embeds its language arts instruction in Fairy Tales, Folktales, Aesop's Fables, and Jataka Tales in grades 1 & 2, and then does a long series of World Mythology blocks as its cultural study throughout grades 3, 4, and 5. However, you could certainly extend it into grades 6 and 7, especially if you are wanting to be as multi-cultural as possible.
There are lots of compilations besides these books, of course, but they are a solid place to start and each book has enough stories that it could be your sole teaching resource for a main lesson, making them very economical.
