This is the second book of the series, my sentimental journey through books of my childhood. These books are graded, the first one being short rhymes with colorful pictures, and this one moving on to short, rhythmic stories with simple plots easy for young children to follow. Some of my favorites included "The Little Engine That Could", Beatrix Potter's "Tale of Peter Rabbit", and "The Ugly Duckling". I'm having so much fun, I'm going on to the next volume. ...more

A big hit with our toddler, just like Volume 1.

Wonderful collection of stories and poems for little ones. Many of them are folklore from other countries. Suggested musical accompaniment is included at the bottom of each tale.

My cousin gave me the whole My Bookhouse set and I'm finally starting to read it to my daughters. They have Autism so their attention span is not the best so I've waited to start reading it until now.

This volume is short stories with poems mixed in. It starts with "The Little Red Hen" which is quite familiar. There are familiar Aesop Tales like "The City and Country Mouse" and "The Lion and the Mouse" along with more modern stories like "Peter Rabbit" and "The Little Engine that Could."

We worked through this book little by little (primarily during morning time) and it was wonderful! We just went on to the third volume today, and I can already see the jump in the amount of text from the second to the third volume. The stories in this second volume are much lighter and the pages are beautifully illustrated.

Magical and endearing. A childhood classic that I dearly remember reading with my Grandma and now I have to share with my own kids!
