Encouraged further reading fo Classic tales
on 14 February 2014
I bought this for my nine-year-old grandson who has loved books ever since he leant to read. He read the stories together with his mother. The classic stories, although abridged, are well illustrated which added to the interest whilst reading the stories.
As a strong reader, he regularly reads books himself, and his interest in the classic stories from this book has encouraged him to read the full-unabridged books. He now puts aside some of his pocket money and uses it when he sees books such as ‘Around the World in Eighty Days’.
A very well presented book with excellent illustrations, sufficient to add to the stories without appearing as a ‘young child’s book’.
Highly recommended for young readers.
