After privately wishing for more poetry and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s I Have A Dream speech in my reading of the original Classics to Read Aloud to Your Children, I felt that this sequel was tailored to me, for, in addition to my requests, included also were two of Shakespeare's sonnets, a retelling of Mac Beth, Elizabeth Barrett Browning's How Do I Love Thee? and an excerpt from Little Women.

If a third is created (I'm sure it will be entitled: "EVEN MORE Classics to Read Aloud to Your Children
Thank you library! Great collections of short stories. Reading time durations are provided. Stories are broken into the listening levels of my kids. Great way to introduce awesome stories (Beowolf, Pandora's Box) to my kids.
This book I found in an imported books fair in Toko Gunung Agung Surabaya. At first I was being indecisive whether to buy it or not, but because I am a big fan of classics and this book compiled the long-loved classic stories, poetry, and even speeches to be told to children, so I think it's worth it.
The writer, Dr. Russell, also added the meanings of some words that are not yet understandable by children, which is I think very helpful for people who doesn't speak English as their mother langua
My mom read this to me. My favorite stories were Pandora's Box, The Emperor's New Clothes, MacBeth, Dick Wittington and His Cat, Little Women, To Build a Fire, and Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp.
I've quickly becoming a fan of reading aloud to my children. They love it, they are secretly increasing their vocabulary, and any excuse for a quiet moment with your kids is a great thing.
My 9 year old loves these stories and so do my husband and I. It is nice to have MORE classics to read in addition to the first collection.
