This book is a lovely collection of short bedtime stories from around the world. Including ones by Aesop and Hans Christian Andersen and from countries as far and wide as Mauritius and Iran, the stories are retold in simple words and appealing pictures. Perfect stories full of warmth and good humour to round off the day with your toddler.

Synopsis

The Lion Book of Two minute Bedtime Stories by Elena Pasquali

This is a collection of ten great stories retold at a cracking pace - perfect for bedtime reading. These ten stories include retellings of tales from the much-loved storytellers Aesop and Hans Christian Anderson as well as traditional folktales from around the world - including the Philippines, Iran and North America - all with something wise to say about life. Each story is retold in a short but continuous narrative, with quick and quirky illustrations adding to the momentum. The playful element is enhanced by text that 'interacts' with the pictures by means of join-in onomatopaeic labels and speech bubbles so that they are fun to share with children. The large text and carefully managed readability mean that such a book is also great fun for young children who are learning to read.
