" 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.

" Updated 2012:See my review of this book (A MUST HAVE!) on my blog, www.bookdivabooks.blogspot.comThis 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! " said.

" 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! " said.

" 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. " said.
