This hardback book with foil detail, ribbon marker and beautiful illustrations is a lovely gift to cherish: perfect for 4th birthdays and Christmas!
Meet a host of colourful characters and join them on their adventures in this fantastic collection of stories. From the garden hijinks in the Slug Olympics, to the delicious story of The Yummiest Cake in the Whole Wide World, to the touching rhyming story The Boy and His Teddy Bear, these stories, some original, some adapted from fairytales around the world, will enchant and enthral in equal measure.
This beautiful book contains original, inclusive and fun stories about animals, dragons, pirates, nature, vehicles, music and much more, so there will be something for every young reader in this rich collection.
The tales are arranged in order of complexity so that the child listening or reading will increase their confidence as they make their way through the book. Most children may not be able to read independently by the age of four, but they can build a foundation of literacy skills. For example, many can recognise letters, understand that print carries a message and know that sentences are read from left to right. Some may even be attempting to read.
