Illustrated Classics for Girls (Usborne Illustrated Story Collections) this is a seriously good looking book form Usborne and one I have adored reading with my daughter. In traditional cloth binding with a gorgeous ribbon marker it is a proper old fashioned story book that will be passed down generations for sure.
It contains six absolute classics The Railway Children, the wizard of Oz, The secret garden, Black Beauty, Little Women and Heidi all comprehensively told. The language and font are large enough and simple enough that a competent KS1 reader could mange it but these stories I think beg to be shared too. The illustrations are totally gorgeous and liberally sprinked throughout the book.
This is a book to keep and to treasure to look after and to cherish.
