Item Description...
Fifteen read-aloud picture books are compiled in this colorfully illustrated collection, featuring work from an array of celebrated authors and illustrators, including Caldecott Medal Winner Kevin Henkes.

Publishers Description
In the eight years since this blockbuster anthology of 44 classic picture books of the 20th century was compiled, important new picture books have been published that Janet Schulman believes are too good to miss. She has selected 15-some by brand-new voices of the 21st century, some by young authors and illustrators who were just getting started during the last decade of the past century, and a few by familiar names, such as Kevin Henkes with his 2005 Caldecott Medal Winner. This recommended list with descriptive annotations is intended to guide parents to these new books and new voices of the 21st century.
Unparalleled in scope and quality and designed for reading aloud and sharing, this splendid anthology brings together some of the most memorable and beloved children's books of our time. Here are classics such as "Madelin"e and" Curious George"; contemporary bestsellers such as "Guess How Much I Love You" and "The Stinky Cheese Man"; Caldecott Medal winners such as "Make Way for Ducklings" and "Where the Wild Things Are"; and family favorites such as "Goodnight Moon," "The Sneetches," and "Winnie-the-Pooh." The selections range from concept books and wordless books to picture books and short read-aloud stories, and represent the complete array of childhood themes and reading needs: ABCs, number and color books, stories about going to bed and going to school; tales about growing up, siblings, parents, and grandparents; animal stories, fantasies; fables; magical stories; stories about everyday life--and more. Also included are an introduction, capsule biographies of the 62 writers and artists represented in the collection, color-coded running heads indicating age levels, and indexes. As a gift, a keepsake, and a companion in a child's first steps toward a lifelong love of reading, "The 20th Century Children's Book Treasury" belongs in every family's bookcase.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
STORIES  Jun 4, 2008
What is more comforting to a child than being curled up in bed and having Mummy or Daddy reading a good story -- big story books are pages full of magic!
Wonderful Collection  May 19, 2008
When my children were young we read from this almost every night. It contains many of the favorite stories that I grew up with as a kid. It is a must for any parent's library.
Great Convenient Format for Great Stories  May 17, 2008
I would like to respond to the negative reviews which criticize this compilation's editing and condensing of original stories. Obviously these reviewers have never taken a vacation with many small children. This book is the perfect thing to grab on your way to the beach, or the plane, or the long car ride with children, even children of different ages. There are MANY great stories which my kids have been enjoying for the past 6 years. They still reach for this one more than any other single book.
A TWO Star only to be fair  Apr 20, 2008
I was really disappointed to see that many books in here were abridged. Also, although the book is large in its dimensions, some of the chosen books had multiple small pictures per page. In addition, some of the stories were great choices but a lot of them were not the best ones either. I saw this book in the library and checked it out immediately and was so glad that I did not purchase it. An EXCELLENT compilation of picture books to buy would be "A Treasury of Picture Books" from publisher Harper Collins. That is by far the best children's book we own. I will always keep that one as an heirloom. Check out my review for that book.
Good job by editor but some favorites not here!  Apr 12, 2008
Editor lists names of more bks from recent yrs to read apart from this, but they should have been included here to expand the new edition of this bk, acc to me. That way all my favorites would be here. But this is a great bk!
