5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book, 25 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Firebird (Young Reading, Series Two) (Young Reading (Series 2)) (Hardcover)
The illustrations of this already marvellous fairytale are captivating, just what early readers need. The story is presented is ideally sized chapters, and as with all the books in this Usborne Series it is the perfect size for small hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect children's book, 17 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Firebird (Young Reading, Series Two) (Young Reading (Series 2)) (Hardcover)
A lovely little hardback book with great illustrations. I will be using this as a teaching aid so may purchase a larger version too so that the pictures are easily seen but a perfect size to slip in your bag. The story is a charming fairy tale about a Prince called Ivan who goes in search of the Firebird, the most beautiful bird in the World.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful story for young readers, 19 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Firebird (Young Reading, Series Two) (Young Reading (Series 2)) (Hardcover)
A delightful story with beautiful illustrations and very clearly written.
The story is in easy to understand language and builds the Childs self-assurance in there ability to succeed and progress.

Perfect for children who are ready for chapter books in terms of content but who like plenty of illustrations to look at in a book as well as words. These are a great series of stories and excellent quality books.

Another great book !

5.0 out of 5 stars Much loved book, 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Firebird (Young Reading, Series Two) (Young Reading (Series 2)) (Hardcover)
This is quite a long story. If I read it she doesn't get a second book.

This version story isn't as annoying as some. "Take the bird, but don't touch the cage" so what does he do?
In this version the firebird is too hot to touch so he has no choice.

The pictures are good and colourful and the story is well told.

She has a lot of books and this one has been requested at least once a week since I bought it.

The prince's first horse gets eaten by a wolf (picture of horse lying down with red neck) and the wizard at the end is a bit scary too.

This review is from: The Firebird (Young Reading, Series Two) (Young Reading (Series 2)) (Hardcover)
this book is perfect. The firebird is such a lovely ballet and it is nice to have a story to read to little ballet dancers. My daughter wanted this book so that she could work out the characters in the story as she is making a tiny stage with the ballet on for her cousin for Christmas :)
