Great stories for reading aloud,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Story Tree: Tales to Read Aloud (Hardcover)
This is a lovely book, with great stories that are really fun and easy to read aloud. We've been reading them to our two-year old, who loves them. They have a nice rhythm to them - so the first line repeats "Once upon a time there lived a little girl and her mother. Once upon a time there lived a little girl and her mother and they were hungry." The stories are from all over the world, too, so while I knew the story of the Little Red Hen (English) and the Three Billy Goats Gruff (Norwegian, apparently), I didn't know any of the others and it was nice to learn some new stories from different places as well.
We don't have the CD, which I've seen some people haven't enjoyed as much, but as far as the book and the stories are concerned: it's great. I wish there were more.
