They still have fond memories of us reading it together in the 80's so I ordered one for my grandchild and am looking forward to doing the same with her.
My children loved these book and now their children do as well...fun to read to them as well.
I grew up with this little set, but lost it somewhere along the way. So happy to find it for the next generation. The quality is exactly as I remembered. Wonderful.Published 19 days ago by KathleenVV

The stories are some of my favorite but didn't know the size is about 2 inches by 3 inches (at best) and not appropriate for sitting with your child to read in an easy manner. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Mary Gregory
