Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

We expect a lot of Trelease, and this enticing anthology does not disappoint. The 50 selections, sensibly grouped by subject (real life, fantasy, classics, folktales) and difficulty, range from good to outstanding. Some are complete stories; others are appetite-whetting chapters from novels; all are aimed at K-4. Many pieces come from "old favorites" ( Bambi , Homer Price , Charlotte's Web ), while others have been rescued from undeserved obscurity (including a French gem, "The Magic Thread"). Each carefully chosen piece has also been given a setting that shows it to best advantage. Trelease easily captures the reader's interest, particularly with his engaging introductions but also with the lively note on follow-up reading that rounds out each selection. The buttonholing excitement of the title animates these fascinating mini-essays. Not only will this collection circulate, but the sources Trelease so enthusiastically describes will get a boost off the shelf too.

A wonderful book to read to your children from. My daughters and I each will treasure the bedtime stories that I read to them from this book. Now that they are older they have requested their own copies, hopefully for their own children (I'm keeping my tattered copy for my nights with their children/my grandchildren).

We just got this book today and my kids did not want me to stop reading. What more can I say! I am very happy with this book. Not only does it include stories, but has a section at the beginning to explain them. I am really looking forward to working my way through this book with my children.

These "stories" are chapters taken from larger books. Ideally, reading an out-of-context chapter would be its own reward -- and that the experience would propel the reader to the original book. But we, hoping for the full, rich experience of a well-wrought short story, were disappointed.

This book is great! I have used it for several years now for my children. It helps me choose which books are appropriate for certain levels of reading and understanding and maturity. I am really happy that it also gives a list of related books. When we don't know what to read together next, we always go back to this book!

I reccomend this book for parents, teachers, and grandparents. The interaction possible after a good story told to children by a caring adult makes the video games pale by comparison. Video games have no affect and they neither tuck you in or respond lovingly when a query is posed by the reader to the listener.

This is an awesome book of books. Even you are not interested in reading aloud, it serves as an excellent resource of kid's fun reading list. I only hope it had included more books for girls - the author has two sons, so it's very natural that his list is more boy-oriented.

This along with Why read A loud is a must have on everyone's book shelf.
Some books recommended were difficult to find in the library as they were old books but worth trying at your local library

This was the first book I bought myself as a teacher. It was a treasure to me and the books I chose to read from it delighted my students. Now those books are delighting my granddaughter.
