About this title


A collection of thirty stories to read aloud from such picture book author and illustrator favorites as Helen Oxenbury, Martin Waddell, Anita Jeram, and Amy Hest.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-K--This anthology includes the complete texts of 30 popular picture books, such as Anita Jeram's Contrary Mary, Shirley Hughes's Two Shoes, New Shoes, Alan Durant's Mouse Party, and Martin Waddell's Squeak-a-Lot. The selections are good choices that will be well known to storytime regulars, but some of the magic is lost in the process of reducing full-length picture books to a few pages. Children and parents familiar with the originals may be disappointed by some of the altered illustrations. For example, Grampa Duck's tail is cropped off in a full-page painting from Amy Hest's In the Rain with Baby Duck, and in Penny Dale's The Elephant Tree, six separate illustrations have been reduced and crammed onto one page for a rather jumbled effect. In Miko Imai's Sebastian's Trumpet, some of the satisfaction of seeing the little bear finally produce a resounding blast from his horn is lost since both his struggles and his triumphs are played out on the same page, depriving readers of the fun of turning the page to see what happens next. Still, this book could serve as an introduction for new parents who can then seek out the original titles and enjoy them in their full glory.-Dawn Amsberry, Oakland Public Library, CA
