Expose your child to timeless tales with these two great treasuries!

The images and illustrations of Mary Engelbreit come to life in this wonderful treasury of twelve fairy tales, meant for sharing with your child! Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Frog Prince, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Pea, Rapunzel, Thumbelina, Snow White and the Red Rose, Rumpelstiltskin, and Sleeping Beauty.

The fairy tales are generally 12 pages or less, making this an ideal treasury for bedtime reading, as well as a quick reference for teaching using different fairy tales!

Mavor, Sally.
Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes.
September 2010.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Review copy provided courtesy of publisher.

Complete with over sixty nursery rhymes, Pocketful of Posies is a wonderful resource for parents, teachers and children alike! From the classics, (Little Bo Peep, Pat-a-cake, and Jack and Jill Went Up the Hill) to the lesser known (See saw, Margery Daw, and Molly, My Sister), children will love the rhyming and take pleasure in learning all about nursery rhymes!

This is definitely a must have and I'm so lucky that I can take this in and share all these with my preschoolers!
