The Steadfast Tin Soldier

A classic love story to share with children, Rachel Isadora‘s The Steadfast Tin Soldier, is retold and illustrated beautifully. Even though there wasn’t enough tin to finish his leg, the soldier stands strong through all the cruel twists and turns in his life. He remembers his love for the ballerina, who because of her pose, also appears to have only one leg. In the tragic end, the two are reunited as only true love can be.
