I recently discovered these Classic Start books at the bookstore and I have fallen in love with them! As an educator, these are a great way to introduce classics to my students of all ages in a way that will not scare them off. I'm currently teaching English to adults and many of my students have heard these stories or have similar versions in their native countries. I just finished Grimm's Fairy Tales and can now discuss an array of stories with my students because of it.

This was a great book! It included many of the classic fairy tales I grew up with as a child!! This was a shortened form of the brothers Grimm stories and it made them very relatable and easy to read for students. My favorite one was Hansel and Grethel. I will absolutely be using this in my classroom!

Wow. So that's what the stories were really about. I had heard rumors but now I know. Great stories, and darker than you'd expect.
