Curling up with a good book is one of life's great joys-and it is never too early to introduce that pleasure to children. The selections in this elegant volume are designed to be read aloud in ten minutes or less, or to be devoured by developing readers on their own. READ-ALOUD CLASSICS includes fairy tales from Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, and selections from The Black Stallion, Kipling's Just-So Stories, The Story of Dr. Doolittle, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Chronicles of Narnia, Little Women, and many more, reflecting a diversity of styles, cultures, and subject matter. Full-color illustrations throughout-many drawn from the original books-enhance reading enjoyment.
