Publisher Summary

Bedtime Classics: charmingly illustrated board book editions of perennial favorites, simplified for the youngest readers!

Bedtime Classics introduce classic works of fiction to little literary scholars through character-driven narratives and colorful illustrations. Designed to be the perfect one-minute bedtime story (or five minutes–if you’re begged to read it over and over), parents can feel good about exposing their children to some of the most iconic pieces of literature while building their child’s bookshelf with these trendy editions!

When Jack is sent to market to sell his family’s cow, he makes a trade for some magical beans, much to his mother’s chagrin. To Jack’s surprise, the beans grow into a giant beanstalk. Jack climbs all the way up and encounters a frightening giant. But when the giant is fast asleep, Jack climbs up and steals his treasures.
