We have a 2 1/2 year old and we read this every night! i love that it's all in one book and she does too! She looks forward to reading out of this book every night! We end up negotiating how many of the 10 stories we read!

Well narrated and beautifully illustrated, this one book is a volume of 12 classics. This is a heavy book in weight, and in ideas and concepts to discuss.

My 2 year old daughter just received this as a gift - it is a lovely book, full of true childhood classics (many of which we already own). However, as a toddler, she still hasn't grasped the concept of treating books carefully - so we're still sticking to board books and other hard to destroy formats. So, this beautiful treasury will sit high on a shelf for several months (or more). Perhaps we can read some of the stories to her at bedtime, but quite honestly the book is so heavy that I'm not really looking forward to having the book on my lap. This book will likely simply occupy space on a bookshelf - and look terrific. A great idea, but just not practical.

This is a great book for children. Harper Collins did a wonderful job compiling an excellent variety of books. My kids absolutely love reading a listening to the stories. It's also great to take on trips because you can pack one book instead of twelve. An excellent bargain for the price.

What is not to adore about this collection of well-loved picture books, complete with commentary and suggestions for reading with your child? And I must recommend my latest favorite picture book, TUB TOYS.
