The Christmas Clock’s Ticking … Order Nr’s Kids Books Today

Influential author, editor of World magazine, syndicated columnist, distinguished journalism professor–Marvin Olasky’s juggling act is better than anything you’ve seen at Cirque de Soleil. We’re exceptionally pleased by his kind (and accurate!) take on National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature and The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories, which we share with you now:

“Before having children I did not realize that it would be so much fun to read them bedtime stories. It’s no trouble finding picture books and fairy tales for young children, but eloquent tales that can be read to or read by older kids are harder to come by. These stories are just what parents need for children’s joy and their own pleasure.”

Many thanks Marvin. You’d be wise to take his sound advice and get your copies of these wonderful books. With Christmas looming these books are the best thing you can give a child or a family: they have real worth and lasting value, and will help shape children into being good, decent, moral folk. Order any or all of our great titles: the original edition or “Volume Two” of The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature, and our new book designed especially for new and beginning readers, The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories (a lavishly illustrated collection of enchanting stories by the great Thornton Burgess). Order here.
