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. ( )

This treasury contains many of the most wonderful picture books of the 20th Century, as well as many that I hadn't previously read. My only complaint with this book is how many of the stories are compressed in order to fit everything in, by shrinking the illustrations and putting a lot on a page. I think that this detracts from the story reading experience some, and prefer compilations where the original layout has been preserved (such as the HarperCollins Treasury of Picture Book Classics).

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679886478, Hardcover)

Believe it or not, 44 complete read-aloud classics and future classics--from Goodnight Moon to Stellaluna--are packed in this remarkably svelte, positively historic anthology. Flipping through the 308 pages of The 20th-Century Children's Book Treasury is like browsing a photo album of beloved friends and family. The familiar faces of Curious George and Ferdinand the Bull peer earnestly from the pages, and scenes from Madeline and Millions of Cats resonate as if you just experienced them yesterday. Think of the advantages of carrying this book on a vacation instead of a suitcase of single titles! (Your kids can always revisit their dog-eared hardcovers when they get home.)

This impressive collection of concept books, wordless books, picture books, and read-aloud stories was artfully compiled by longtime children's book editor and publisher Janet Schulman. Stories are coded red, blue, and green to designate age groupings from baby/toddler books such as Whose Mouse Are You?, through preschool books such as Where the Wild Things Are, to longer stories for ages 5 and older such as Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. The reason the book isn't bigger than Babar is because many of the illustrations from each story were reduced or removed to fit the anthology's format. (Leo Lionni's Swimmy, for example, takes up 5 pages total, compared to its original 29 pages.) Brief biographical notes that are surprisingly quirky shine a little light on the 62 authors and illustrators, and an index helps, too, for the child who likes one story best. We love the idea of being within easy reach of a Star-Belly Sneetch, a William Steig donkey, and a Sendak monster at all times, and we're sure your little bookworms will, too.
