We Love Our Kids’ Books, So Do the Critics, and So Will You!

Here’s what Catholic Parent magazine had to say about The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature: “excellent, wholesome, and certain to broaden the horizons (mental and spiritual) of children and adults who love them. Truly, this is a volume that can be counted on to provide youngsters and even teens with superlative prose and poetry that entertain and, more importantly, promote and instill those values and lessons increasingly needed in our current culture.” Hot diggity! You really owe it to a deserving youngster to get them both of our Literature volumes – each is large (7” by 10”), lavishly-illustrated, 500-plus pages, and crammed with over three dozen stories, fables, and novels personally selected by William F. Buckley Jr. What a great Christmas gift. Get both and save $10. Order the set here.
