In this preschool collection we have created an anthology of classic stories and less-familiar favorites that younger children will love. With language tailored to be easily understood by two- and three-year-olds, this is a perfect choice for bedtime, storytime or any other time that calls for sharing. This multicultural anthology combines best-loved children's stories such as "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Three Little Pigs" with lesser-known favorites like "The Timid Hare." Vivid illustrations and easy-to-follow text make this volume perfect for reading aloud to young children.
