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 "Madeline" 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," "Winnie-the-Pooh," and "Alexander & The Terrible, No Good Very Bad Day," soon to be a motion picture.
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.
This beautiful edition includes a recommended list of books published in the time since this anthology's original compilation, including Caldecott Honors" Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus " and "Olivia," with descriptive annotations intended to guide parents to these new books and new voices of the 21st century. Also included are an introduction from editor Janet Schulman, 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.
