Theres only really two decent stories in this book out of 4 overall. Really great illustrations, lacking in text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice collection well summarized for little ones 16 July 2010
By A. Woodmansee - Published on
Our twin daughters had just turned 3 when we got them this book. This book will make a nice beginning reader for when the girls get to that age. It is a very high quality hard cover book with a ribbon for marking your place, all at a very low price for what you are getting. The cover art work is very appealing to my girls, and they ask me to read read read! We bought this along with several other Usborne books at our local independent children's book seller in Minneapolis. This book has 5 stories in it, The Nutcracker, Town Mouse Country Mouse, The Snow Queen, Alice in Wonderland, and A Day at the Farm or something like that. I like that the art work is a little different from story to story, in the Young Reading series books we've gotten the three stories in each of those has the exact same art work and it makes it monotonous and makes not seem like they are separate stories, so the varied artwork from story to story in this book was nice. I also think they did a nice job of summarizing the stories presented so that they were not too long, too grown up, or too confusing. Definitely recommend.

I was looking for a special book for my new granddaughter. Something to start a tradition with, this was the first of many. It is better then the picture. I am very pleased and will continue to order from this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cover 28 Feb 2011
By Suzan Lawrence - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to donate to a local school library. The cover is gorgeous and since kids often select a book by the look of the cover, it gets checked out a lot. However, the short stories contained in the book are not all that interesting and my goal was to donate a book that would excite imaginations and encourage children to read. (Very sturdy book--holds up well under multiple usage by young children.)

I ordered this book for my 6 year old niece. It is complied of around 7-8 short stories. She loved it and we read the whole thing in one sitting. It is a good sized book, larger in size than I thought. The quality is good and has nice illustrations.
3.0 out of 5 stars ok, but I expected more 23 July 2011
By JenV - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Its ok, and sort of cute, but I expected more. I expected some more creative/ unique stories, not a truncated Alice and Wonderland, farm animals and the nutcracker... just sort of random I thought. Its ok, but if I had seen in person, I probably would not have purchased this.
