I purchased two of the same book and sent one to my Grandchild, age 6, in a distant state. We set daily times to go on Skype and practice reading the fairy tales. This is a marvelous game which she adores and is learning to read aloud beautifully. She does a paragraph and then I do a paragraph . It is an informal play lesson which we both enjoy and which is, no doubt, excellent for her studies. I recommend this activity to any and all grandparents who want to cement closer relationships with their families.
This book was read to me when I was very young and I was very excited to find it again. The illustrations are beautiful. Most of the well-known fairy tales are included. However, stories from the Brothers Grimm have, of course, been adapted so as not to be so grusome. I loved it as a child and I love it now!
