Holiday Gift Guide: Masked Fairy Tales

goldilocksThe holidays are right around the corner and we are on the search for the best of the best for this holiday season.  One of our favorite things to give this time of year is books.  In fact, we know of a tradition that is a Christmas countdown of a book a day from December 1 – 24th.  We’re kicking off our holiday gift guide with a fun take on story time with two classics, Goldilocks and Little Red Riding Hood.

Make story time even more fun with these witting retellings, complete with perforated, punch-out masks for playing along.  Each dust jacket contains two masks to provide even more fun during story time.  These books are beautifully designed with foiled and embossed covers making them perfect for gift giving.  Encourage imaginative play and creativity this holiday season with these classic stories.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Ooooooh! Who smells porridge? Goldilocks’s tummy is rumbling. She has been walking in the woods for hours. Can she resist the smell of warm delicious porridge?

This is a retelling of a classic just with a fun illustrative twist.  Ellie Jenkins took the original story and mixed it up by adding fun fonts, fabulously silly vocabulary and super bright illustrations. With phrases like “Goldilocks shimmied down the big tree”, your kids will be laughing their way through this classic.

With two fun masks included with the book, its also a great role play activity as well. The first mask is a bear and the second of Goldilocks’s golden hair with a bright red bow.  Your kids can have hours of endless fun utilizing these masks in a variety of ways.
