’Tis the Season

It’ll hit 90 this week in the Big Apple, and here we are at NR HQ yapping about . . . Christmas gifts. But it so happens that we are trying now to make our stockpile of acclaimed children’s books — which, truth be told, are perfect Christmas gifts — vanish. A word to the wise being sufficient, we hope for those of you who find this to be a great, albeit off-season, this opportunity will wipe the sweat off your brows and place an order. 

We’ll show just one picture to save some space — we’re offering two sets of books, each set costing just $29.95, which includes shipping and handling, each set featuring two big (7″ by 10″) hardcover tomes teeming with delightful illustrations and stories by some of the giants of Western literature (such as Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Louisa May Alcott, Jack London, L. Frank Baum, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Lewis Carroll, and Thornton Burgess, to name a few). You can find out more, and order Volumes 1 and 2 of The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature — their wholesome contents (some 78 stories) personally selected by William F. Buckley Jr. – right here.  

Then for wee ones (beginning readers and even younger ones who love to be read a sweet tale before they nod off) we have Volumes 1 and 2 of The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories — you can get complete information, and purchase sets, right here. Each of these volume includes ten wholesome Burgess tales about colorful woodland denizens (from Peter Cottontail and Sammy Jay to Buster Bear and Jimmy Skunk), all adorned by the beautiful illustrations of Harrison Cady. If you are in a mind to give a gift of enduring value to those deserving young ones in your life, you cannot go wrong with our Treasuries. Supplies and limited, and they continue to dwindle, quickly. So please do order your sets today.
