Far, Far, Away!
Myths and Legends from around the World retold for young children.
All children love myths and legends and here are some of the best. The timeless tales of Robin Hood,Ali Baba, Hiawatha and others are full of adventure, bravery and the fact that actions have consequences. Parents will love these retold versions as they are ideal for busy families and deliver a quality story time. The idea is that you enjoy reading together; associating reading with fun, attention, closeness and cuddles is an excellent thing to do.
These stories are designed for your child to join in when the rhymes are in block capitals such as
RIP VAN WINKLE LAZY MAN,
DOES AS LITTLE AS HE CAN
This is fun and you can laugh as you learn but it also helps with memory and prediction of the story which are both essential reading skills.
I have been telling these stories for over 30 years to pupils and my own children and they are guaranteed to be popular.
I call the stories ‘best loved’ to make sure they are suitable, as some myths and legends can be very frightening and they will not be here.
I use simple language to make them accessible to children so soon they will be able to read them alone.
