Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mildred Hart
Nine beloved classics with original copyrights dating from 1942 to 2004 are united in this volume. Sophisticated TV-watching children today are fortunate to have new access and a modern format bringing old favorites to life again. This collection will appeal to young readers, as well as to adults who read to pre-readers. Attention is paid to details that enhance the stories. In "The Whispering Rabbit," for example, the whispers are in very small print and almost demand a change in the reader's voice. Enjoyment, however, is not the only bonus gained in using this book, because it is also a subtle teaching tool. "Baby Dear" centers around introducing a new sibling to a child; "Colorful Kittens" focuses on colors; "The Wonderful House" on different homes for animals, such as a snail, a hippopotamus, and a bee; and "The Poky Little Puppy" assures the reader that being different from others is not always bad. Most of these stories have animal characters, both domestic and wild, which are always friendly, cheerful, and non-threatening. Unfortunately, the illustrations sometimes use stereotypes, which may be offensive. Little Rajani, the Indian boy in "The Boy and the Tigers" wears an exaggerated turban; the Native Americans are often sinister and glowering; the Creator is a bearded man. Nevertheless, visiting these tales, whether for the first time or as old friends, is an enjoyable experience. From the "Little Golden Book Treasury" series.

    A compendium of plodding tales

    This is a collection of old children't stories, where many have a theme centered around bedtime. The stories do not grab one's attention, but perhaps that is the point. My 2.5 year old finds some of them too wordy to bother with. I like the classic illustrations.

    Classics from my childhood

    This is a compilation of 7 classic Golden Books dating from the 1940's through early 1960's with two newer books added in. If you loved the classic Golden Books, then you'll love sharing this book with your kids. They're maybe not the best "sleepytime" stories, but they're fun just the same. My girls love Baby Dear, and who doesn't love The Poky Litty Puppy?

    Sleepytime Book not worth the Money

    When we first saw the book's title we thought it would be a great book for our little girl, full of short bed-time stories. We didn't like it at all. They were meaningless stories with a lack of imagination. Don't waste your time and money on this book. There are a lot of better books out there.
