Audible Editor Reviews

In 1905 Hamilton Wright Mabie published Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know, as distinguished from the author's similar works, Famous Stories Every Child Should Know and Myths Every Child Should Know. What does Mabie require children to know in this audiobook? Actress Samantha Worthen tells listeners the familiar fairy tales of Cinderella, Puss in Boots, and Sleeping Beauty as well as lesser known tales from The Arabian Nights, the Brothers Grimm, Aesop's Fables, Charles Perault, Hans Christian Andersen, and others. Worthen's warm, amiable, child-friendly voice brings a light to sometimes dark material. In classic children's narratives she has clearly found a genre where she can shine.
