From the Inside Flap:

s will find their favorite authors and illustrators in one great big book-including works by Dr. Seuss, P.D. Eastman, Richard Scarry, Stan & Jan Berenstain, Torrie dePaola, and Marc Brown.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-This somewhat disappointing collection includes 16 stories, all previously published. Richard Scarry, Jane O'Connor, Laurent De Brunhoff, Tomie dePaola, Harriet Ziefert, Stan and Jan Berenstain, and Marc Brown are among the authors and illustrators included. However, the quality of the selections is uneven. Excerpted chapters from perennial favorites like Dr. Seuss's Fox in Socks (1965) and P.D. Eastman's Go, Dog, Go! (1966) appear along with Jon Buller and Susan Schade's mundane 20,000 Baseball Cards under the Sea (1991) and Katherine Ross's ho-hum adaptation of The Ugly Duckling (1991, all Random). Additionally, the organization is haphazard with some of the easiest stories lost in the middle where intimidated beginning readers will never venture. Nonetheless, there are those youngsters who will be thrilled to find "a fat" book that they can read and carry around like a trophy. Too bad there's so much mediocre filler.
