Great Books Make Great Gifts—For Christmas and For a Lifetime


Remember, once upon a time, how a good book broadened your horizons and fired your imagination—how it influenced your life. Now do the same for someone else by giving a set of our acclaimed kid’s books as a Christmas gift. We offer three wholesome books (totaling over 1,000 pages, with hundreds of stunning illustrations) for just $29.95. Who will enjoy these delightful works?

Wee ones and beginning readers will love The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories. This beautiful hardcover which contains 10 of Thornton Burgess’s enchanting and wholesome tales featuring Johnny Chuck, Peter Cottontail, Reddy Fox, and scores of other merry denizens of the “Green Meadows” and “Briar Patch.” It’s perfect for reading as a prelude to sweet dreams, and new readers will find it ideally suited to them.

Older kids will find the second volume of The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature to be a celebration of tales finely told and lessons charmingly taught. From knights and pirates to fairies and princesses, from cowboys and Indians to giants and dwarfs, from beggars and angels to dogs and cats (and every other animal you can think of!), from brave young girls defending their country to intrepid young boys risking their lives to rescue others, whether it be tales of daring and action or silliness and sadness . . . or even saintliness, this treasury of 37 wonderful stories by the unrivaled writers—Mark Twain, Jack London, Louisa May Alcott, Rudyard Kipling, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and many more—will interest and entertain any and all children.

We complete our set with the story the great “Oz” author L. Frank Baum considered his best—Queen Zixi of Ix, or the Story of the Magic Cloak. It is a wild and wooly and exciting fantasy that is as instructive as it is entertaining. This 100th Anniversary edition is republished with the 90-plus original illustrations by the talented Frederick Richardson. Kids of all ages, and adults too, will love it.
