This is the classic Hans Christian Anderson story of a man whose foolish pride gets the best of him. With bright, vivid illustrations, kids love this version.

Emperor¿s New Clothes by Hans Christian AndersenThis fantasy story is about two rascal¿s trying to make some money by making the Emperor some new clothes. The only problem with the clothes is they are an ¿invisible suit¿. The invisible suit is definitely invisible to everyone including the Emperor¿s subjects who realize very quickly the invisible suit is not suit at all the Emperor is naked! I think this story is very amusing! I think the rascals are pretty tricky to convince the emperor that invisible clothes are the style. It is also funny what the subjects have to say about the emperor¿s clothes.I would recommend this book for Kindergarten to 2nd grade students. The students will laugh at the humor of the emperor¿s new clothes. I would ask the students to design some real clothes for what they think the emperor should wear.
