Stories of Beowulf Told to the Children by Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall
By: (1867-1941)

Stories of Beowulf Told to the Children is a delightful retelling of the classic Old English epic poem, Beowulf. Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall has done a wonderful job of making this ancient tale accessible and engaging for a younger audience. The story is filled with brave warriors, fierce monsters, and epic battles that will captivate readers of all ages.

Marshall's writing style is clear and easy to follow, making it perfect for children who may not be familiar with the original text. The illustrations throughout the book also help bring the story to life, adding an extra layer of depth and excitement to the narrative.

One of the things I appreciated most about this book is how Marshall stays true to the spirit of the original poem while also making it suitable for children. She highlights the themes of courage, loyalty, and the importance of standing up to evil, all of which are timeless lessons that are just as relevant today as they were centuries ago.

Overall, Stories of Beowulf Told to the Children is a fantastic introduction to this classic tale, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to share this epic story with young readers. It's a book that will inspire a love of storytelling and mythology in children, and will leave them eager to dive into more classic literature in the future.
