There’S Never a Bad Time For a Good Book

We continue to receive heaps of praise for The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature and The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories. Here’s the take on these big, beautiful books from the respected essayist and commentator Midge Decter:

“‘Treasure’ is the right word to use for these three collections of children’s literature. Indeed, reading through the National Review treasuries is a happy reminder of the time when children were respected as creatures capable of both real thoughts and real imaginings rather than, as they so much are today, no more than a cohort of small and conventionally attitudinizing adults. Indeed, with the Treasuries in tow, parents and children are both apt to begin anticipating bedtime as a whole new adventure.”

Powerful words. Many thanks for them Midge. You know, it’s never a bad time to get a deserving child a good book–especially one that is wholesome. So take this opportunity to get the deserving youngsters ones in your life 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 beautiful stories by the great Thornton Burgess). You can order them securely here.
