Maybe we should all by a copy for ourselves and our children!!!

All in all I'd totally recommend it - good for parents to brush on these amazing stories, and great book for slightly older kids.

Format: Paperback
I liked this one better than "Grimm's Fairy Tales" because A) they're all super short, great for reading a teeny bit at a time and B) the language is much more understandable. But like "Grimm's Fairy Tales", the stories get repetitive after a while. They're all moral lessons, and they fall under three categories: evil is its own ruin, be honest and don't lie, don't be vain/greedy/prideful. Consequences of failing to heed lessons A, B, and C will result in you being eaten by a tiger 90% of the time.

Great literature circle book. High interest for small group work. Promotes discussion around character curriculum. Great read aloud for parents or grandparents with children. Great for teaching genre form to students.

Great commentary and a straight forward translation of these classic tales. Good illustrations for the fables found within; nothing over the top.

I use these books as prizes or awards for youth storytelling classes and events. The size and selections of stories is just perfect as is the cost when buying for many youth.
