The Three Billy Goats Gruff by Rebecca Hu-Van Wright (Author) and Ying-Hwa Hu (Illustrator) was released last year. This one is actually an easy reader with beautiful illustrations. My youngest niece is learning to read and loves this tale so this is another temptation on my list to share with her. Here are some pages to share.
Three Billy Goats Gruff live on a hillside, and they are always hungry. One day, across the valley they see delicious looking green grass, and they decide to go there. But they have to cross an old bridge guarded by a terrible troll.
Retold in repetitive, and lively language, this classic tale invites young readers to read alone. Award-winning illustrator Ying-Hwa Hu s detailed and soft illustrations enrich the story the billy goats and troll come alive on each page. The humorous tale pulls in readers, curious to see the end, while the repetitive words help beginner readers build vocabulary.
