Leila Berg's collection of stories Folk Tales for Reading and Telling has been a stand-by in my classroom for years, not only as a wonderful source of stories from all over the world for me to read to the class, but also for young, fluent readers who like the patterning and rhythm of many of the stories, want something approaching a long book but can't yet tackle long text. Now Leila Berg has brought out this collection and it is going to be equally a necessity in the classroom. The stories are short, sometimes only a page or two, quirky, lively and funny and interspersed with short, simple rhymes and poems. It is the perfect book for children to gain confidence on and also to keep by you for odd moment stories. Nearly every story provoked the response 'read it again' and, what is more, nearly every story stood being read again!
