Here's a remarkable treasury of illustrated stories for parents to share with new readers! Janet Schulman, editor of the bestselling 20th Century Children's Book Treasury has compiled this companion volume as a next step for children who are now beginning to read.
With stories from both renowned children's book creators as well as newcomers, this treasury celebrates the joy and importance of reading aloud to children, even after they've learned to read on their own. The 26 selections, among the best from the 20th century, feature the original illustrations, unabridged text, and an open, inviting design. From picture books to short novels, from poignant to magical to just plain silly, the stories have been carefully chosen for broad appeal, accessibility, and high literary quality. A bright and irresistible invitation to reading, this book will inspire a love of reading--and reading aloud--in children and parents alike.
Includes stories like The Bears on Hemlock Mountain by Alice Dalgliesh and illustrated by Helen Sewell; Freckle Juice by Judy Blume and illustrated by Sonia O. Lisker; Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss; Pierre by Maurice Sendak; and more. Recommended for ages 6 to 10.
An anthology with sure-fire appeal for children who are starting to read on their own but still enjoy being read to.
