In case someone else doesn't provide the perfect book, here are a few
I've heard of:
Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest by Ann McGovern
The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
Stories of Robin Hood Told to the Children by H. E. Marshall
The Adventures of Robin Hood by Roger Lancelyn Green
I haven't read any of these all through, and I haven't tried reading any of
them to four and five year olds. The Marshall book seems like it would be
understandable to five year olds who have been read to often, and it's available
as a free ebook from www.mainlesson.com, so you can try a chapter or two on
your subjects before you buy.
