" We own most of the stories in this compilation as standalone picture books, and they *are* better that way--easier to manage, with bigger pictures. But when we found this at the grandparents' house it was a godsend, and kept us entertained every night for a week. Nice variety of classics! " said.

" 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. " said.

" 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. " said.

" 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. " said.

" 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. " said.

" 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. " said.

" 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. " said.

" 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! " said.
