Synopsis

Hansel and Gretel by Janet Brown

My First Reading Book is an illustrated first reading book in a large, fun format - ideal for group storytelling. Simple vocabulary and imaginative pictures of all the characters and locations ensure that children can follow as you read, or try for themselves. Interactive writing exercises and a maze at the back of the book provide a valuable aid to learning. It is a delightful retelling of a classic fairy tale, with a fresh and lively storyline designed to appeal to young readers. When a woodcutter and his wife become too poor to feed their two children, they reluctantly abandon little Hansel and Gretel. The children wander through the woods, cold and hungry, until they happen upon a house - and what an unusual house it is. The walls are made of gingerbread, the roof is made of icing, the windows are spun sugar, and door is made from marshmallow. Who could live in such a place...? The timeless tale is retold in this enchanting book, with appropriate vocabulary and familiar language that children can easily follow.
