The list author says: "I am Wendi Capehart, I am one of the seven Advisory members who writes AO. We've added affiliate links to our website, and hope that you will take a look there so your purchases benefit the people who did the hard work of developing the programme. This list includes titles on the official year 0 list from the website, and some of my family's personal favorites."
"I know this is expensive, and we watched for individual titles at library sales, thrift shops, and used book stores ourselves, and I do not own all 23. Use your library. Do not use a large volume of all the stories. Children should be able to hold these stories in their hands as Miss Mason intended."
"Your children should be familiar with old folk tales and stories such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Henny Penny, The Little Red Hen, The Three Little Pigs, and so forth. This book has most of the good ones, but you should get it at Gutenberg.=)"
