The Random House Book of Nursery Stories Reviews
This is an excellent book for my preschoolers!
The illustrations and stories are ideal for reading to a child. We (my little girl and I) particularly like the illustration of the path to Grandma's house in the Little Red Riding Hood story.
No one is reading Fairy Tales to young children anymore and that is a shame. My granddaughter loves these stories and asks me to read them over and over. This particular book has wonderful versions and illustrations of the timeless tales!
My two and a half year old daughter loves this book. It contains ten of the classics: Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, the Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man etc. The author has carefully toned down the potential for graphic and violent endings in some of these stories so they are suitable for the very youngest. Red Riding Hood and her Grandma do not get eaten by the wolf for example and the woodcutter "knocked the wolf down with his ax" and that's as far as the description goes.
I had been looking for a good fairy tale book for my 2 1/2 year old and this is it! The word to picture ratio is great and the stories are told simply and clearly without losing content and charm. The illustrations are wonderful. There is a particularly clever one dipicting the lengthy path traveled by Little Red Riding Hood, as opposed to the Wolf's shortcut to Granny's house. The table of contents has a picture from each story next to the title so my daughter is able to choose the story she wants to hear just by looking. It has some classic nursery stories plus of couple that were new to me - cool!
