The Orchard Book of Bedtime Fairy Tales by Helen Craig (Orchard Books)

How are stories passed on from one generation to the next? It's an interesting thought and one surefire way of making sure classic tales get a look in is to pick up a gorgeous anthology like this one...
"The Orchard Book of Bedtime Fairy tales" by Helen Craig gathers together some of the best loved and most popular children's fairy tales of the last few centuries, and places them lovingly amongst gorgeous illustrations in this all new hardback edition from Orchard Books.

Most children are usually introduced to classic fairy stories individually, but here's a chance to devour ten all-time favourites in one huge gulp, ranging from "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" right through to the awesome "The Gingerbread Man" and many others.

It's a great book to read aloud to very little ones, and will hold their interest with the full colour illustrations throughout.

If you're looking for that first story collection for your tiddlers, then this is a surefire hit.

Charlotte's favourite story: The Gingerbread Man (who is SO NAUGHTY) according to her

Daddy's favourite story: A great version of Little Red Riding Hood which is always a favourite to read aloud
