Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This collection of 10 simple stories would make excellent nighttime reading when your toddler wants to stay up for just a few more minutes. Every two-page tale starts with "Not so long ago..." taking toddlers on a real life adventure. They could experience a snowy sled ride or visit with make-believe space aliens. Each story is easy to relate to and makes a great stepping stone for conversation with your child. The charming illustrations are strategically placed around the pages giving your young audience something to look at throughout the story. Don't be surprised if they keep asking for just one more. 1999, Greenwillow Books, Ages 3 to 5, $16.00. Reviewer: Sharon Tolle

    My four-year-old son has been telling short, once-upon-a-time, stories for about eight months.  His stories are quirky, funny, silly, profound and offer a glimpse into the mind of a preschooler.  Anne Rockwell's Long Ago Yesterday are stories that she gathered from her young relatives, and transcribed, illustrated and edited into a collection.  Her "contributors" were slightly older than my storyteller, but her stories also are quirky, funny, silly, profound and a offer a glimpse into the mind of a child. 
    The illustrations are sweet and simple, and don't overwhelm the text.  I think that when telling children's stories, as in stories that children have told, these are important qualities.  In fact, these are qualities I try to apply when illustrating my son's stories.
