Children's Thrift Editions feature great story collections in easy-to-read type and at a great price. These are considered "thrift" editions because the margins are generally narrower, and binding and paper are possibly of slightly lower quality than full price editions. All volumes are paperback. Folk and fairy tales add a fun dimension to any history or geography study! ~ Rachel P.
