Ladybird Favourite Tales

Ladybird Favourite Tales are the timeless, treasured stories that generations of children have grown up with and loved. These easy-to-read retellings, enhanced by rich, colourful, and exciting illustrations beautifully captures the all the magic of the original stories.

These books are ideal for reading to the kids when they are young. Once they start reading on their own, they would simple love to read these as they are familiar with the story and the words. This is one of the best collections of story books to get your kids get interested in reading.

I used to read from these books to my nephew and niece when they were young—3-5 years and shared many wonderful evenings with them. I must have read each story time and again and all the three of us still know them by heart.

Each book is about 26 pages with the fantastic illustrations taking most of the space. So it is a delight for the kids to read them. The production quality is excellent—hardbound with a lay-flat design. The books are small (4.8 x 6.8 inches) is rugged enough to withstand the handling of kids learning to read.
