James Baldwin has collected fifty wonderful stories, including Robin Hood, William Tell, King Alfred And Julius Caesar. Your child will be delighted to hear or read these, and will not only be entertained, but learn about history and folklore. These stories will also help lay the foundation for broader literary studies.
This is a great book to read aloud to your children. My girls (age 8 and 6) love this book. They took it with them for their vacation at Grandma's and made Grandma read nearly the whole book in the week they were there.
The fifty stories are short 2 or 3 page stories of famous persons, mostly real, a few fiction.
This book is a GREAT way to introduce important historical figures and a love of history to your children. This would be a great book for a dad to read to his child that would keep them all (dad included) interested.

I have been reading these stories to my preschooler. She has such a adventurous spirit and loves stories of "heroes". This is a perfect collection to inspire true heroism while opening her mind to beautiful stories of Julius Caesar, King Alfred and others. Each story is short, but well told. I am very happy I bought this book.

This book is interesting to adults and children alike. Some stories are familiar, and some, though old stories, will be new to modern readers. It is an easy read and a nice read-aloud, also.
