My daughter would have enjoyed these stories when she was an infant
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 9 years ago
When she was young, I read to my daughter every night, the ritual was largely the same, several books each night, sometimes repeating the same books night after night. The upside was that my daughter enjoyed it immensely and the downside was that I had no choice but to memorize a large number of children's stories. What was interesting to me is that I have never encountered any of the stories in this collection before. They are: *) The Greedy King, by Irene James *) My Garden by David Eden *) The Brave Little Engine, by Robert Moss *) The Dragon of Wantley, by David Eden *) The Straw Hat, by Lucy Kincaid *) Sprogget and his Pets, by Rosalind Sutton *) Jumping Frogs, by Lucy Kincaid *) The Magic Spectacles, by Robert Moss *) Stairs, by Rosalind Sutton *) Chiffa's Moon Trip, by Dennis Burley These stories don't have the obvious lessons that others do, yet they are certainly worthy of being read to children. Had I known of this book when my daughter was young, no doubt I would have memorized it as well.
