Curling up with a good book is one of life's great joys-and it is never too early to introduce that pleasure to children. The selections in this elegant volume are designed to be read aloud in ten minutes or less, or to be devoured by developing readers on their own.

READ-ALOUD CLASSICS includes fairy tales from Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, and selections from The Black Stallion, Kipling's Just-So Stories, The Story of Dr. Doolittle, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Chronicles of Narnia, Little Women, and many more, reflecting a diversity of styles, cultures, and subject matter. Full-color illustrations throughout-many drawn from the original books-enhance reading enjoyment.

About the Author:

Glorya Hale is a published author and an editor of children's books. Published credits of Glorya Hale include An Illustrated Treasury of Read-Aloud Poems for Young People (Read-Aloud) and Read-Aloud Poems for Young People: Readings from the Worlds Best Loved Verses (Read-Aloud).

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-6-This shortened and illustrated volume has half of the poems found in Read-Aloud Poems for Young People (Black Dog & Leventhal, 1997) plus one new selection. The list of authors reads like a who's who of American and European poets, such as William Blake, Lewis Carroll, Robert Louis Stevenson, Rudyard Kipling, and Alfred Lord Tennyson. The more than 100 poems are organized into the same nine topics, such as "Laughing Lyrics" and "Poems to Ponder" that appeared in the earlier version. The page introducing "Nature's People" misspells Emily Dickinson's name. A selection of lovely watercolor-and-ink drawings by early-20th-century illustrators Fanny Cory, Marguerite Davis, Kate Greenaway, and Jessie Willcox Smith create an old-fashioned, nostalgic mood. The poems are attractively typeset with plenty of white space. Occasional sidebars mention interesting facts about the selections or their authors. However, the cover states the volume contains the "World's Best Loved Poems," when there is no evidence of global representation. Likewise, all of the children depicted are white. Despite the flaws, this is a solid collection of English-language children's poems and an appealing addition to library collections.
