Val Biro’s delightful and ever popular traditional tales have been adapted for classroom teaching. Each of the six stories is available as a big book; this is ideal for shared reading with the whole class. The big books are each a challenging read with many language and layout features typical of traditional stories built in for discussion. Each is also available in smaller format; for these, suitable for guided reading, the text has been simplified to be appropriate for the average child. Notes in the back of each book, written by Oxfordshire literacy consultant and author Julie Carr, give lots of teaching ideas for shared or guided sessions. “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” and “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” are suitable for 5-6 year olds.
