Muppet Babies' Classic Children's Tales is a large format book containing photos by John Barrett of the Muppet Babies photo puppets in their versions of classic nursery rhymes and fairy tales. It is interesting to note that although the characters appear somewhat true to their origins in Miss Piggy's dream sequence from The Muppets Take Manhattan, the group includes Baby Animal, who only appeared in puppet form in A Muppet Family Christmas, and Baby Skeeter, who was introduced in the animated Muppet Babies series and never appeared in puppet form on film.

Each photo is accompanied by text from the featured story, surrounded by illustrations by Tom Brannon. Each one contains a rat, possibly meant to be a Baby Rizzo.

The book is based on photographs taken for the Muppet Babies Storybook Calendar 1990. The care taken in the set and costume design for these images is reminiscent of the work of Michael K. Frith in the 1980s on projects such as the Miss Piggy Calendars.
