I read a few reviews so wasn't expecting too much. The stories are in rhythm format so a little goofy trying to make the story fit. The pictures a little cheesey too. However my class of K4's love them. The sit mesmerized while I'm reading them and they usually want me to read it again. I like the size of the book so all 14 of my kids can see it. Kids love them so I love them.
Stories are not appropriate for young children. The back of each book says PARENTAL GUIDANCE. What children’s book says that!?! In the book jack and the beanstalk, the giant is “completely dead” and jack laughs and says “what a hoot”. These “children’s” books are very deceiving and do not portray the fairytale stories most of us are used to.
