In the eight years because this blockbuster anthology of 44 classic picture books from the 20th century was compiled, important new picture books have been published that Janet Schulman believes are too good to miss. This suggested list with descriptive annotations is intended to guide parents to these new books and new voices of the 21st century. Here are classics such as Madeline and Curious George; contemporary bestsellers like Guess How Significantly I Love You and The Stinky Cheese Man; Caldecott Medal winners such as Make Way for Ducklings and Where the Wild Items Are; and family favorites like Goodnight Moon, The Sneetches, and Winnie-the-Pooh. Unparalleled in scope and high quality and developed for reading aloud and sharing, this splendid anthology brings together several almost certainly the most memorable and beloved children's books of our time. She has selected 15– some by brand-new voices from the 21st century, some by young authors and illustrators who had been just getting started throughout the final decade of the past century, plus a handful of by familiar names, such as Kevin Henkes with his 2005 Caldecott Medal Winner. Also included are an introduction, capsule biographies from the 62 writers and artists represented inside the collection, color-coded running heads indicating age levels, and indexes. The selections range from notion books and wordless books to picture books and brief read-aloud stories, and represent the total array of childhood themes and reading needs: ABCs, number and color books, stories about going to bed and going to school; tales about growing up, siblings, parents, and grandparents; animal stories, fantasies; fables; magical stories; stories about everyday life--and more. As a gift, a keepsake, along with a companion in a child's 1st steps toward a lifelong love of reading, The 20th Century Children's Book Treasury belongs in every single single family's bookcase.
