As a gift, a keepsake, also as a companion in a child's 1st steps toward a lifelong genuinely like of reading, The 20th Century Children's Book Treasury belongs in each and every family's bookcase. Unparalleled in scope and quality and developed for reading aloud and sharing, this splendid anthology brings together a number with all probably the most memorable and beloved children's books of our time. Also included are an introduction, capsule biographies of the 62 writers and artists represented in the collection, color-coded operating heads indicating age levels, and indexes. This suggested list with descriptive annotations is intended to guide parents to these new books and new voices in the 21st century. Here are classics like Madeline and Curious George; contemporary bestsellers including Guess How Considerably I Really like You and The Stinky Cheese Man; Caldecott Medal winners for example Make Way for Ducklings and Where the Wild Issues Are; and family favorites including Goodnight Moon, The Sneetches, and Winnie-the-Pooh. The selections range from notion books and wordless books to picture books and brief 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. She has selected 15– some by brand-new voices in the 21st century, some by young authors and illustrators who were just getting started in the course of the final decade of the past century, together with a quantity of by familiar names, such as Kevin Henkes with his 2005 Caldecott Medal Winner.
