Richard Scarry's Animal Nursery Tales,
This review is from: Richard Scarry's Animal Nursery Tales (Hardcover)
There are many, many fairy tales books out there. I wanted something that would hold my 2 year-old daughter's attention while I read to her at night. I thought a good place to start would be some of the fairy tales I remembered as a kid, stories such as the "Three Little Pigs" and "Goldilox and the Three Bears."
Most of the fairy tale books I found were composed mainly of text with a few antiquated pictures every now and then. And this is fine for older children, but no so for a two year old. When I came across this book, I knew I had struck gold.
Those of you with children not familiar with Richard Scarry's books are missing out on some of the greatest learning/reading tools out there. Scarry's books are visually appealing -- multiple drawings of delightful animal characters on each page, moving the story along and giving your child plenty of details to view while listening.
As a child of the 70's, I was already familiar with Scarry's books. I must have read each of them dozens of times as a kid, pouring over and appreciating the details in every picture. Let's face it, the way to get kids into reading is to make it interesting; this is certainly a good way to start them off early.
If you're looking for a good way to get the kids interested in reading, or if you just want a quality book of fairy tales for the children in your life, look no further than this one. It's a book your children will cherish and, like myself, read to their own some day.
