Reports show that reading or being read to for ten minutes every day will significantly improve children's reading skills. This short story collection supports this - each story taking about ten minutes to read. Ideal for sharing with younger children; as children learn to read on their own they can tackle these simple stories on their own. The ten well-loved tales, include The Billy Goats Gruff, Chicken Licken and The Jungle Book. Full of humour, adventure and endearing animal characters, these stories will delight young children everywhere. Each fully illustrated story has been retold for young readers and bound together in a lovely hardback edition which children will be proud to own and read.
