The Lovereading4Kids comment
Perfect for reading aloud, this is a rich collection of some of the best-known traditional folk and fairy stories which have their roots specifically in England. Some of them such as Dick Whittington and his Cat have very specific English locations. Many, such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Tom Tit Tot, are familiar from different retellings. Worth hearing again and again, these are stories to savour
There are 'Stories from' books covering the whole of the British Isles. Click on the one you are interested in finding out more about.
