Poppins Book Nook: Fairy Tales

fairytales

Picture of Fairy Tales (C/V)

This book is designed for ages 3+.  It is a multi-level reader.  There is one line of story across the top, and then two lines of story across the bottom.  A reader (child or parent) can read both the top and bottom, a beginner reader can read just the top, or read the top and have a parent read the bottom (so they are reading together). A higher level reader could read just the bottom, or both top and bottom.  Either way, the story still makes sense.  Like all Usborne Books it is beautifully illustrated! 

Stories in this book include:
Cinderella
Sleeping Beauty
Red Riding Hood
Three Little Pigs
The Story of Rumpelstiltskin
Goldilocks and the Three Bears

There is also an episode of Reading Rainbow that was Rumpelstiltskin, but I can’t seem to find it online for streaming.
