My boxed set contained these books: Old Mother West Wind, Old Man Coyote, Prickly Porky, Bobby Raccoon, Johnny Chuck, Jimmy Skunk, and Jerry Muskrat.
The downside of these books is that your children are probably going to want to read as many in the series as possible. Fortunately the prices at Amazon are reasonable and if you need to save some money you can take your children to the library where they will quickly memorize the location of books by Thorton W. Burgess.
Published in 1910 these 16 short animal tales were written for the author's son. A dedicated conservationist from Cape Cod Burgess introduces young children to a rogues' gallery of critters, who learn lessons the hard way. Mother West Wind brings her own children, the merry little breezes, down to play each morning; what they watch the various critters do and say provides human children with simple, sometimes humorous advice on moral behavior without being preachy. Hopefully future generations will appreciate and respect Nature the sooner for having been introduced to these amusing woodland characters with their all-too-human foibles. The choice of illustrator makes these tales come alive, for they stimulate a childlike imagination in an age when too much is pre-programmed for kids. I also recommend a sweet little book of animal stories called Hedgerow Tales by Enid Blyton.
