LoveReading View on 10 Ten-Minute Stories

If your New Year resolution was to spend ten minutes a day reading to your children, then this attractive collection of fairy stories from around the world would be a very good book with which to start. It contains ten stories, each of which will take ten minutes to read, and they are just the thing for bedtime. There are old favourites such as Beauty and the Beast and Pinocchio alongside lesser known stories such as The King’s Pudding, a funny animal story from Indonesia, and, as with all the best fairy tales, they will catch and hold listeners’ attention to the very end. Each story finishes with order restored and the good rewarded, perfect for lights out!  ~ Andrea Reece


10 Ten-Minute Stories Synopsis

A treasury of short stories, carefully selected because they make speedy bedtime reads. Each of these ten traditional tales takes just ten minutes to read aloud. Ideal for sharing with younger children; as children learn to read on their own they can tackle these simple stories on their own.

Reports show that reading or being read to for ten minutes every day will significantly improve children's reading skills.
