About the Author
Classic stories from the source! I bought this so that I could read it to my children before bed. They really love the stories and I feel like it’s better than watching their movie counterparts. I feel like the morals are still applicable even in this modern age and perfect for young listeners/readers. The stories aren’t that difficult to read however they do read better when spoken aloud adding emphasis when storytelling. – Statske
Bought for nostalgia value for my granddaughters birthday. I read these stories often as a child into my teen years. I was delightfully surprised by the “feel” of this book, it feels rich. VERY well made/bound it should last her for years. The ribbon page marker is a wonderful addition to this book. – Sally
