Wonderful story to teach your children to read.
on February 28, 2014
This is an excellent bedtime story that is simple, straightforward, adventuresome, touching, and identifiable for families. This is an excellent story to use to teach your children to read for themselves, because after a few readings they can pick out the words for themselves, then you can "not tell the story right..." and have them show you where you are and correct you, and then read the story for themselves.
This timeless classic has wonderful illustrations that compliment the text with a perfection that is often absent from modern choices.
In short, this book i *valuable* because it is classic, timeless, excellent, entertaining, and pleases both parents and children alike. This is a delightful work that should be in every home.
