1 journaler for this copy...
Beautifully retold and vibrantly illustrated, Little Book of Nursery Tales contains some of the best-known nursery tales in the traditional European storytelling canon. But it also features some tales which have taken on a Creole flavor after years of being told and retold in Latin America. Young readers encounter familiar favorites such as “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” and “The Three Little Pigs” as well as popular tales from the Spanish tradition like “Cucaracha Martinez,” “How Raton Perez Was Brought Back to Life,” and many others. Veronica Uribe carefully chose these classic tales as well as five delightful rhymes, knowing that younger children would love them. Insightful and comprehensive notes at the end of the book describe the origin of each nursery tale.
This lively and refreshing retelling of traditional stories entertains readers both young and old. With its small, pint-sized format and elegant design, it is an ideal gift.
