Usborne Review: The Usborne Book of Fairy Tales

by Stephen Cartwright & Heather Amery
96 pages. Hardcover. 

From Usborne: "Enjoy these traditional fairy stories and charming stories about princesses with your beginning reader. These delightful picture-book editions have padded covers, two levels of text and charming Stephen Cartwright illustrations throughout. Share them today! This combined volume contains the following titles: Cinderella, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin, Sleeping Beauty, and Three Little Pigs."

My thoughts: Often our kids know the stories of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty only because of Disney. But long before they were made into movies, fairy tales were passed down through generations. This book tells 6 famous stories in a non-commercialized way. Beware, they are the real stories -- the big bad wolf in the Three Little Pigs gets cooked in a pot of water, and Red and Granny get gobbled up by another wolf. My girls and I read through all the stories in one setting the first time, and they both told me their favorite story was Goldilocks.
