LoveReading View on My First Nursery Stories

Best loved, classic nursery stories are vividly brought to life in Tony Ross’s humorous and vigorous illustrations. Follow the charmingly agile goats as they trip-trott over the bridge having dispatched the hairy troll SPLASH into the river with a well-aimed kick. See how the three little pigs keep their houses safe from the predatory wolf and watch how Little Red-Riding Hood is outwitted by another wolf as she visits her grandma but is saved in the end. Also available is the companion book My Favourite Nursery Rhymes.


Lovereading comment:

Illustrated in Tony Ross's inimitable style, My First Nursery Stories is perfect for reading aloud and sharing with even the youngest child.  It is a must-have selection of classic nursery stories that have stood the test of time.
