    1. This is a very large book that contains reprints of 44 children's picture books. My kids and I all loved this book when they were younger, and read the stories in it more times than I can count. Many of my own childhood favorites were in its pages, along with many newer stories that I hadn't seen before, that became new favorites in our family. Some of the more notable stories:Where the Wild Things AreGoodnight MoonMadelineChicka Chicka Boom BoomMike Mulligan and His Steam ShovelAlexander and th [...]


    2. You are going to love this book! It is a complete collection of all the classic stories we adored as kids, and it has an easy to follow color code system that alerts parents/kids to the reading level of the story. It makes it simple to find tales that are age appropriate. With over 40 stories to choose from, there is something for everyone!This book would be great as a gift, it would make an incredible keepsake, but most importantly it will help you child in both developing a life-long love of r [...]


    3. I nice little collection of children's stories from different times such as Babar, Amelia Bedelia, Madeline and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. I read these stories to my kids when they were little and reading them all now brings back those cherished memories. I believe you are never too old to revisit a beloved children's story and what better way than with a treasury of stories like this one.


    4. More than 40 favorites will entertain one’s family for hours. This collection is comprised of classics such as Curious George, as well as bestsellers like Guess How Much I love You. In addition, Caldecott Medal Winner Where the Wild Things Are is featured, and some all time favorites like The Sneetches and Goodnight Moon are also contained within this masterpiece. All of the selections included cover a vast array of topics, needs and themes. There are wordless books and short stories, color an [...]


    5. I don't buy very many books because I love to take advantage of our nice library. But this was one book that I didn't want to give back to the library and went out to buy for my kids. This book has all the classic children's books all collected together. It divides all the stories into 3 difficultly level categories that make it great to find an age appropriate story too.


    6. I love this book for the selection and choices of storybooks. However the execution of attempting to save pages and space is horrible. Stories are butchered to make them fit and it is very poorly done.The YELLOW border cover image is new with a new font as of 2014. It was formerly (and my copy) white with navy blue and no border.


    7. I found this awesome book a couple weeks ago at a book store for $1! I could NOT pass this amazing deal up. This book is chalked full of all sorts of amazing books. It's amazing. It's taken a couple of weeks to read this with my kids, but at over 300 pages, it's been well worth it. There's so many stories I knew as a child and ones I've never heard off. There's classics from Miss Nelsen Is Missing, to Madeline, Good Night Moon, Guess How Much I Love, Where The Wild Things Are, Curious George, Wi [...]


    8. I was interested in getting this book because there were so many books in one volume, that it would keep my son occupied for a week or so. I didn't read all of the stories in the book because I either had read them before or weren't interested in them. I will review the new ones I read below: "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" by Bill Martin Jr, and John Archambault, illustrated by Lois EhlertI admit that I never read this book because I thought it was overrated, and everyone seemed to want to recommend [...]


    9. My all-time favorite collection of children's stories. I have read this book aloud to my kids for years. Our first copy was so worn out that I ordered a new copy this past Christmas. My kids love it! And I do, too.


    10. A great collection of classic children's stories. I think this book would keep a kid going for a long time. These are all stories I remember I loved reading over and over again as a kid.


    11.  A good way to get children interested in readingFirst, you need to know what you are actually getting with this book. This is a condensed version of some of the most favorite children's stories - 44 of them, in fact.All of the original text is in the stories except for two of the stories - AMELIA BEDELIA and PETUNIA - and they are condensed. What has been cut out of the book are many of the original illustrations. And in most cases, the illustrations that remain are greatly reduced in size.To [...]


    12. I tagged this one youth, but it is best for the very young. This is my favorite book to give as a baby gift, because it has a tremendous collection of stories, from board/picture books, shorter read-alouds, and even a few longer stories. They are listed by age, and cover decades of work by dedicated children's authors. There were stories from my own youth, or older (heaven forbid!), some more recent into my kids' era, and everything in-between, even some books I'd never read as a child, and foun [...]


    13. I checked this book out because it was the only one with "Curious George" at the library. I'm so glad I found it! It has 44 stories! Some of my favorites from when I was little, and some I hadn't seen before. We brought it on vacation with us and it was perfect to read new stories every night and only have to keep track of one book! The only downside is that there aren't as many pictures to some of the stories, so it's easy for the kids to lose interest in the longer stories with only a few pict [...]


    14. My son and I read this book as a part of Sonlight's P3/4 curriculum. We both greatly enjoyed this anthology. Even though I would have preferred to own all the books on their own, especially for the illustrations, this is a much more affordable option. This is a great collection of classic and modern children's literature. My son enjoyed pretty much every story in here. He continually pulls it out at bedtime so we can read his favorites. This book is also perfect for travel because there are so m [...]


    15. Read this through two or three times now with the kids. It's got almost every famous children's picture book known to man in the one volume.My only issue is that some of the stories have had some of their illustrations taken out so that they could fit more stories in the book. But on the whole, if you want to get a whole bunch of famous kids books in one shelf-space-friendly volume, this is a great place to start.


    16. A great collection of 20th century children's books. There is certainly no disappointment here with the stories that were selected. Many of them are treasured in our home. The formatting, however, presented a little bit of a letdown for a couple of the stories. When so many of the pictures are shown on a single page vs. the lead up excitement or focused solitary image on a page, the results just aren't going to be as dramatic with a few of the stories.


    17. This lovely treasury of children's literature contains a collection of classic picture books. I enjoyed reading two or three stories to myself each night before falling asleep. Some of my favorites are The Tub People by Pam Conrad, Good Night, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann and "In Which Pooh Goes Visiting . . ." by A.A. Milne. The biographical notes in the back are quite interesting too.


    18. We love this collection of stories - and how there are some for very young and others, a little longer and wordier, for children as they grow in maturity and ability to listen. Our only (small) complaint is that with so many pictures/pages included on each spread, it is hard to see the real detail of the illustrations and my son gets a bit distracted with wanting to read ahead! But other than that, we love it!


    19. Updated 2012:See my review of this book (A MUST HAVE!) on my blog, bookdivabooksThis book has tons of Caldecott winners . . . in one book. I keep it in my violin bag (to keep children occupied during another's lesson) and bring it on most vacations with the children. (One book tons of picture book stories) The illustrations are condensed, but the stories are there. Delightful!


    20. This is such a great compilation of great children's books. It traveled with us all over California so that we were never short on a selection of bedtime reading. Sometimes it's disappointing that the illustrations are abridged, but such is the case of squishing so many books into a portable companion. Highly recommend!


    21. Some of the stories included are probably better read as an individual book (eg Goodnight, gorilla) because the illustrations are vital and need a bigger size to see the details. Otherwise, it is a decent book to have as a collection. I think it gives a preview for some of the stories. I may end up buying some of those I love individually for my younger toddler.


    22. Just a wonderful little book. Great stories, both familiar and a bit out of the main stream. The perfect book to take on a trip. Lots for the older (6, 7, 8 year olds) to read to themselves; lots for the younger kids to have read to them.Just a great resource and a fun book to own. I still pull it out 15 years later and reread my kids' favorites.


    23. This is the single best investment I've ever made in my children's library (and boy, I have bought them a *lot* of books over the years). It includes so many classics -- "Chicka Chicka Boom," "Millions of Cats," "Guess How Much I Love You," "Make Way For Ducklings," "Freight Train" (which taught my daughter her colors) and much, much more.


    24. This is such a good collection of books, however I was very disappointed in the quality of the illustrations. Some of them were missing (to save room), the colors are off and many are way too small. I think its a great way to become familiar with many classic stories, but you may need to buy the actual copy of them to get the full effect.


    25. This anthology contains 44 influential childrens stories written as early as 1916 through the 1990's.I had so much fun looking through this book and coming across so many beloved stories from my own childhood.My favorite stories include:*I am a bunny*The Story of Babar*Bedtime for Frances*Good Night, Gorilla*The Cat Club*Make Way For Ducklings*Madeline


    26. A great collection of picture-book stories. If you're looking for a variety of good stories to explore with a child this is it. The book is large and heavy though, and depending on how you sit when reading to a child, this book may not be comfortable. Also, the pictures are sometimes smaller than what you would find in the original books.


    27. A lovely treasury overflowing with children's books. However, the illustrations are reproduced in small size, with as many as four or even six pages worth of illustrations put on a single page of this treasury.


    28. Great collection of stories. C and Daddy seem to prefer this book lately. I don't like how big and heavy it is and how the pictures are smaller than in the individual books from the collection, but C and Daddy seem to love picking up one book and having so many fabulous stories in it.


    29. I have given this wonderful collection of stories to many, many expectant mothers. Who needs another onesie when you can have this? This book contains dozens of the books we enjoyed as children and that we read to our children when we had them. A wide variety of stories, all delightful.


    30. Some great classics in here, but also plenty of books with stiff writing styles and anticlimactic endings. Still, it's tough to say what kids will like, so it's a worthy anthology to get a feel for a kids taste.
