"Papa, please tell us a tale." When Papa's seven little mouse boys ask for a bedtime story, Papa does even better than that, he tells seven stories, one for each boy!
Mouse is in a jam, soon he'll be weasel soup! Weasel is ready for his dinner. And poor mouse is it. Just in time, he thinks up a clever and entertaining way to distract weasel from serving up mouse soup for supper.

It has a wonderful collection of short stories for very young children. I am an ESL teacher and my students love it. The stories get progressively more challenging, so it helps to improve the students' listening skill.
"Excellent for young children"
My 2, 4 and 6 year olds all enjoy listening to these stories read by Arnold Lobel. They don't listen to it continuously but they do regularly request it.
We also have a selection of these stories in a beginning reading book which my 6 year old will read along to with Arnold, or page turn at appropriate points for his younger sisters.
Lovely gentle stories.
