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.
