Product Description
Product Details


PreS-K-Seven familiar nursery tales are accompanied by bright, stylized, folk-art illustrations, done in paper collage and acrylic. Selections include "The Cock, the Mouse and the Little Red Hen," "The Gingerbread Man," "The Ugly Duckling," "Goldilocks," "The Timid Hare" (a "Henny Penny" story from India), "The Three Little Pigs," and "Stone Soup." The retellings are straightforward; most are faithful to the most commonly known versions and retain the familiar refrains (e.g., "Run, run as fast as you can!" or "Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin!"). The rather long and complicated Andersen tale is perhaps the least successful. However, the collection as a whole is delightful; the art is fresh, vibrant, and full of child appeal.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

"The collection as a whole is delightful; the art is fresh, vibrant, and full of child appeal." -- School Library Journal "School Library Journal"
