Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An anthology with sure-fire appeal for children who are starting to read on their own but still enjoy being read to. This brilliant collection by the editor of The 20th Century Childrens Book Treasury contains 26 selections for parents and children to read aloud. Including works by such illustrious authors and artists as Maurice Sendak, James Marshall, Judy Blume, Ursula Le Guin, William Steig, and Roald Dahl, the selections range from the humorous to the magical to the contemporary to the just plain silly. The text of each selection is included in full. You Read to Me & Ill Read to You is a must-have book for all families who want to inspire their children to develop a lifelong love of reading.

Review:

"It's easy to imagine entire families losing themselves in these pages for hours." Publishers Weekly
