My Little Treasury of Bedtime Stories by Nicola Baxter


My Little Treasury of Bedtime Stories by Nicola Baxter

This is a timeless collection of 145 delightful bedtime stories, fully illustrated with colourful and engaging drawings. The short stories are the perfect length for reading aloud, with accessible language and lively pictures that will keep small children entertained. It includes four chapters each featuring a different cast of cute animal characters: Teddy Bear Tales, Farmyard Tales, Kitten Tales and Bedtime Tales. The small chunky format is easy to handle, and for little children to hold themselves. There is something for everyone in this classic collection of stories, full of cute kittens, busy bears, animal antics and lots of cheeky children. In Five Minute Teddy Bear Tales, the little town of Bearborough is home to baby bears and granny bears, opera-singing bears, and trampolining bears! In Five Minute Farmyard Tales, little pig gets lost (and found) and everyone enjoys Farmer Barnes' pie contest! When a mother has five little kittens to take care of in Five Minute Kitten Tales, she certainly has her paws full! Finally, the collection of Five Minute Bedtime Tales is an enchanting selection of sleepytime stories with silly rabbits, noisy elves, and lots of surprises. Charmingly illustrated throughout, children and parents alike will enjoy sharing these sleepytime stories, and the useful index of favourite themes makes it easy to choose the perfect story to bring each busy day to a cuddly close.
