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. Illustrations: Full colour throughout

What a lovely collection of stories.  Maddison, at 8 years old, reads a huge range of different books by different authors, but you can't beat the old classic stories. She loved the fact that these were only short and she read them to herself at bedtime.  The writing was clear and easy to read, making this a great book for younger readers.  The illustrations were detailed and fun and helped to tell the story.  This is the kind of book that can be read over and over again and should have a place on every child's book shelf. We loved it!

We all enjoyed reading the stories. Such a nice book and illustrations which kept the children interested. My big boy can also read it all by himself, a bonus as the little one can sit by his side and listen! Thank you for another great giveaway!

A beautiful book, lovely front cover and illustrations. A great selection of stories, including some old favourites. My five year old daughter enjoyed looking through the stories and we have been enjoying them at bedtimes. Would recommend for boys and girls.

My daughter loves her bedtime stories, so this book was perfect for her. We haven't just read it at bedtime though. It was nice that it had stories that were new to my daughter, such as the goose girl and the tinder box, Alongside the classic stories she knew already such as Jack and the beanstalk and Goldilocks. Her favourite story was Rapunzel. The stories were the perfect length and the illustrations were lovely. It's nice that we can just pick which story we want to share, and it will be a book we read regularly.

My 5yr old daughter was so pleased to get this as a prize from Toppsta.  Every bedtime we have settled down to a read-a-long of one of the 10 tales. She can sound out a paragraph & I read the next bit (or the rest if she is tired.) My 8 yr old son has nabbed it to read after, as he likes The Tinder Box dogs "with eyes as big as saucers".
Set out with lovely, colourful illustrations, a lot of these titles can be bought separately in the Usborne Young Reading series for £4.99 each so at £12.99 this volume is a bargain.

Stories inside are:
Jack & The Beanstalk
The Gingerbread Man
The Emperor's New Clothes
Goldilocks & The Three Bears
The Reluctant Dragon
Tom Thumb
The Goose Girl 
The Tinder Box

We're half way through this book having read one story per bedtime.  Really enjoying the lovely old fashioned fairy-tales which are beautifully illustrated.  Our 5 year old is loving these,  they are stories that they have read and had lessons based on at school and for me and Daddy they are a lovely reminder of childhood.   Would highly recommend
