The Barefoot Book of Princesses May 20, 2008
My seven year old grand-daughter loved it!! We read it together until it was bedtime. First thing in the morning, she wanted to finish the book, thank goodness it was Saturday. She enjoyed all of the stories and did have a favorite.
smashing anthology Oct 27, 2000
This is a beautifully illustrated anthology of folktales from many cultures. I enjoyed reading it as much as the listener enjoyed hearing it. I did have to tone down some of the stories slightly based on our choices for our preschooler [they are traditional folktales, and sometimes violent, but not more than I was exposed to as a child!] and would not be upsetting to most older children. It is a lovely way to glimpse other cultures and traditions, particularly as the illustrations seem to mesh well with each story and culture.
