" 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 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.

" 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.

" 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. " said.

" 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. " 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.

"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 pictures. This one is worth buying." said.
