Reviews - What do our customers think?
HEAVY but worthwhile!  Jun 13, 2008
Yes, this book IS heavy! But my tiny 2 year old loves it so much that she lugs it off the shelf and hauls it on the couch for us to read. That's 5 stars in her book. My 4 and 6 year old love to flip through and choose numerous stories for us to read - they enjoy this book also. I am glad it's in our children's book collection.
Great book!  Jun 4, 2008
I bought this book for my 4-year-old granddaughter and within the first week we had read through it completely and at least half of it twice. It's a great compilation of top-notch classic picture books and in a quality presentation. It's a little too heavy for a child to cart around with him or her, but should be a favorite at story time. All the books inside are full sized with reprinted original illustrations.
Practically sells itself  Apr 12, 2008
This is the kind of book that should sell itself -- a collection of classic children's stories. At a time when going to the children's section of any bookstore can be overwhelming, it's a relief to find something like the Harper Collins Treasury of Picture Book Classics. It takes away all the guesswork by being filled with over a dozen stories that are already tried and true, stories that are proven entertainment to a wide variety of children. And they're all in one book (though it's a heavy sucker, to say the least). The contents are as follows:

Goodnight Moon written by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Clement Hurd
Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina
Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson
Crictor by Tomi Ungerer
A Baby Sister for Frances written by Russell Hoban, illustrated by Lillian Hoban
Leo the Late Bloomer written by Robert Kraus, illustrated by Jose Aruego
William's Doll written by Charlotte Zolotow, illustrated by William Pène Du Bois
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie written by Laura Joffe Numeroff, illustrated by Felicia Bond
George Shrinks by William Joyce
Baby Says by John Steptoe
From Head to Toe by Eric Carle
Pete's a Pizza by William Steig

In addition to these timeless stories, the Harper Collins Treasury of Picture Book Classics contains short author and illustrator biographies (such as what other books they've done) and useful ideas for sharing the story further with children (like concepts to discuss). And all proceeds from the purchase go to First Book, which donates books to needy families. It's a win-win situation, and not only for you and your children, but for others as well.
GREAT book...for all ages!  Jan 18, 2008
This book is a wonderful collection of classic children's stories! Not only will kids love it, but as an adult, it was very nostalgic to flip through and revisit some of my favorite stories as a kid. Who doesn't love "Goodnight Moon" and "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"?? Just a good time, fun read for everyone. I gave this book as a gift...and I think I may have to purchase another one just to keep for my own personal collection!
Fantastic book!  Jan 7, 2008
We have borrowed this book from the library so many times that we just ended up buying it. My 3-year-old loves picking out which story to read next from the pictures on the front cover. Highly recommended.
