The Lovereading4Kids comment
Young Reading: Series One. The beautiful story of a couple of elves who are the making of a 'down at heel' shoemaker. This level is perfect for children just starting to read confidently on their own. These are 48 pages in length with 1000-1500 words. They use fairly short, simple sentences and everyday vocabulary. Typically, these titles contain several short stories or one longer story divided into chapters. Fables, folk tales, history and contemporary fiction form the mainstay of this level.
The Elves and the Shoemaker is an absolutely gorgeous retelling of the Grimm Brothers classic tale complete with the most exquisite illustrations we’ve seen for a very long while. You’ll marvel at the colours and the intricacies of each and every shoe and the moving storyline. Beware though; there is a downside to this book in that it is guaranteed to make your toddler a shoe fanatic from a very early age!
