Thornton Burgess's stories may be old, but they still resonate with young children. My daughters love the stories and it sparks their imagination. In addition, the CD's are complete and are over 1 1/2 hours. This is an excellent addition to any child's library and the CD's extend the value. They are great for rest times, or nap/bed times. The only possible negative is that the book is a paperback, and your child may read it so many times that the book may wear out quickly. But this is well worth a look.

Format: Hardcover
This is a compilation of Burgess' classic tales of animals and is a wonderful work. It is, however, consisting solely of brief excerpts of his other books. His other works on animals rate a 5-star by me.

I purchased this book book for my (then) 5 year old son and he loves it! This book is a compilation of chapters from the original books and therefore it should be noted that it DOES NOT include the full stories (i.e, books). Despite this fact, it is still a great addition for a young child or as an intro to Burgess' stories. Also, since my son enjoys listening to stories on his mp3 player, we added these and he was VERY excited about having this book as take-anywhere, read-along material. The pictures are also very nice and a wonderful addition. . .he enjoys just thumbing through the book to look at these, reminiscing about the events of each story.

Overall, an excellent purchase and highly recommended.
