I bought this book to read with my 7 year old grandson. He is a very good reader, but still enjoys being read to. He loves this book, and so do I! It's a perfect book for keeping alive English Myths and Legends which are seldom passed on these days. Some of them I remember from my childhood, but don't remember having many of them at hand to pass on to my own children. Good opportunity now to pass on to my grandchildren! Well worth buying.

Stories From England: Oxford Children's Myths and Legends 8 Feb. 2010
By Claire V. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I was a young child in the early Sixties, one of my favorite series of books was the Oxford Myths and Legends series. I still have the Chinese Myths and Fantasies volume I got as a Christmas gift in the second grade (much to the puzzlement of my classmates). There were many others which I checked out of our public library and read. When I saw that this new series was being published, I immediately purchased this volume, as well as the Scottish and Irish myths and legends, for my eight year old daughter (and as he grows a little older, my five year old son). The stories are well told, the illustrations excellent, and I have always viewed these books as entertaining and easy to digest windows into other cultures (especially those non-british or Irish in origin), and insight into times long before not just electronic media but even the widespread availability of printed books, when a culture's stories were part of an oral tradition. This series gave me a broader outlook on the world and will do so, I believe, for my children. I recommend this volume, and the others, and I look forward to more books being published in this series.
