The title kind of says it all. What are your favorite collections of fables, fairy tales, rhymes, and poetry. There are so many different collections. If it helps, I have an almost 4 year old.

I am partial to the Usborne Greek Myths for Young Children: nice illustrations, short enough to read aloud and it was a good review for me--I really enjoyed them.

A favorite at our house with my boys, 3 and 5, is Tomie Depaola's "Favorite Nursery Tales". A little Aesop and other traditional tales. Fun pictures. My kids ask for Johnny Cake often, the story that is.

I like Oscar Wilde's fairy tales. The Selfish Giant is one of my favorite books from my childhood. The illustrations are so subtle and lovely.

Hans Christian Anderson wrote a few of my favorites, like The Little Mermaid and Thumbelina.

A short list. When some other people respond, I'll take some notes of my own. I love good books!
