One of the series that really hooked me on Usborne are their Illustrated Series. These are illustrated versions of classic stories. The collections of stories are typically abridged and written that makes them accessible for young children. The illustrations are always amazing and are perfect for summer read alouds. Which book would you love from this series? (There are so many!)
