Pick of the Week: Yummy Eight - Favorite Fairy Tales

Just one look at the cover of this book and you'll know it might not be the best to share with very young children (or those easily frightened!). However, this is one of the best books introducing fairy tales that I've seen for young children. Lucy Cousins' (famous for her Maisy books) illustrations are bold, bright, and depict the stories so well! Each fairy tale is simply told, which is a great introduction to classic tales that can often be too long for some children to sit through. The eight stories that are included are Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Enormous Turnip, Henny Penny, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Little Red Hen, The Three Little Pigs, and The Musicians of Bremen.
