Product Description:

The second book, contains some familiar favorites (i.e. Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, Snow White) as well as lesser known fairy tales from French, German, Danish, Russian, and Roumanian sources.

Category Description for Fairy Books:

Each of these four books contains a collection of over thirty unabridged fairytales edited by Andrew Lang. The stories are presented in "clear, lively prose for which Lang was famous," and they are generally considered to be the "best English versions of standard stories."Recommended in The Well-Trained Mind, these books will become a treasured addition to your home library. Please note that these are complete and unabridged versions of first editions from the late 1890s and early 1900s and there may be instances in which the language is considered outdated or offensive today. ~ Enh

Classic fairy tales for the whole family to enjoy
I use this with my six year old daughter for read-alouds and she really enjoys it. These are not your average stories so you may have to explain some to younger audiences, however there are are some I have never heard of. It also doesn't stray too much from the original stories I remembered as a child which is nice. You won't get too many happy endings for example. This could be a wonderful homeschool resource for morning baskets or family reading.
