5.0 out of 5 stars Super book - great variety March 26 2009
By Pink Rhombus - Published on Amazon.com
Just bought this. It is hard to find books that are content appropraite for a Kindergartener, yet interest her and build her vocabulary. And this seems to take care of it all.

Lots of short stories and poems. Wide variety of characters and topics. Many I've heard of, but many are new to me.

There is also a boys version

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Treasures, Some Trash June 7 2012
By J. Weaver - Published on Amazon.com
When we first saw this book in the store, we skimmed through several stories to see if these were ones that would be appropriate for a 5 year old. Among the authors listed on the copyright page are Hans Christian Andersen, William Blake, John Keats, Christina Rossetti, William Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stevenson--sounds good, huh? One problem, though, is that the individual works aren't attributed, so if you don't already know who wrote them, you certainly won't get that information in this book. And what's more, there are as many unknown authors who don't have nearly the skill of these writers.

There are some great little poems here--Rossetti's "Hurt No Living Thing," Blake's "Spring," Tennyson's "City Child." There are also classics like "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush" and "Frere Jacques." But these are oddly interspersed with stories that have little literary merit and even less contemporary value. I know what the original meanings of these texts are, and I understand they might be considered "classics," but some of the selections, like "Ride a Cock Horse" and "Tickly Tickly," are so outdated that they require more explanation than actual reading. Likewise, the messages that the stories present to young girls aren't necessarily ones that I want to project to my daughter. "The Case of the Disappearing Books," for example, is a two page story about a girl who goes to the library only to find that many books are missing. It turns out that a famous rock star had "borrowed" the books without permission. He returns the book and receives no punishment because, while the librarian was pleased to get her books back, "she was even more pleased to meet her favorite rock star."

After reading that little gem with my daughter, we did have a great discussion about fairness and about how it wasn't right that somebody got away with doing something wrong just because he was famous. I didn't mind the discussion, but it certainly wasn't what I expected to have when reading a book for girls, and I'm glad that she didn't read it on her own.

Overall, this "treasury" isn't bad; my daughter loves the story-a-day pace that allows her to get readings from several different books each night. However, if I had it to do all over again, I would've passed on this book altogether.
5.0 out of 5 stars Cute Bedtime Stories for Kids Nov. 26 2010
By Pooz - Published on Amazon.com
I have been very happy with this book. It has cute pictures contains both original and classic stories and rhymes. I bought it for my one year old daughter (who doesn't quite have the attention span for it yet) and ended up using it more with my five year old son.

While it is targeted for girls, I was able to find plenty of stories that appeal to my son as well. I ended up buying the boy version of this book for him since I loved this one so much. The stories are cute, original for the most part and have good morals. They seem to be geared more for younger children and are short enough for them to sit through (most stories are about 1 page long to 4 pages at the most). If your looking for really well written stories this may not be the book for you. The stories are very simple, and not that well written. With that said, my son loves them.

Lots of cute poems and fingerplays too. Some of the themes include: Princesses, animals, dolls, babies, dancing, bikes, soccer, mermaids, grandmas, fairies, etc. Would make a great addition to any family bedtime collection or wonderful gift idea for baby showers, birthdays, grandkids etc!

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be 365 badly written stories for white girls April 5 2012
By Jason Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Stories are feel like they're written by a third grader. No clear points. Not focused. Odd word choices. Just not interesting. All the pictures of smiling white girls are a little freaky too.
