Product Description

Amazon Review

The Three Little Pigs. Humpty Dumpty. Little Bo Peep. Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Thanks to the folks at Puffin, these time-tested favourites (and dozens more) can all be enjoyed in a single, handsomely illustrated volume. Pass on tradition by treating your child to some of the best rhymes and stories in the English language--"Old MacDonald had a Farm," "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" and "Pop Goes the Weasel"--plus newer works such as Eric Hill's delightful "Spot's First Picnic" and Dennis Lee's bedtime "Good Night, Good Night."

Artwork from the likes of Edward Lear, Penny Ives, Beatrix Potter and others make this volume extra special. Both you and your child will revel in Mary McQuillan's bright and silly accompaniments to "The Three Monkeys" and "Pussy-cat, Pussy-cat," along with Shirley Hughes' brimming-with-nostalgia seaside portraits and Nick Sharrat's brightly-coloured array of spiders and the spouts they emerge from. With such enticing drawings, no child will be able to resist joining in with "Pat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake," "Little Jack Horner," and "Jack and Jill."

Rather than reading it from cover to cover, The Puffin Baby and Toddler Treasury is meant for picking and choosing. Make a beeline for your favourites, then go from there. You're not likely to go wrong.

About the Author

Contributors include A. A. Milne, Edward Lear, Robert Louis Stevenson and many more, along with talented children's artists, such as Shirley Hughes, Alison Jay, Nick Sharratt and Tony Ross.

Format: Hardcover
There's lots of 'mother goose' compilations around, but this one's wonderful. Beautifully bound and printed, a good selection of short stories by famous children's authors and the best known nursery rhymes.
This book will surely become a treasured book to keep throughout their lives.
Also good for parents who don't remember the rhymes!

Having searched in vain for a book mixing traditional and current children's stories it was wonderful to find this book. It appeals to the very young who are enjoying having stories read to them, and to the ones who want to, and learn to, read early on, and here I am talking about 3 and 4 year olds. This is a lovely book for parents and grandparents too, who can relate to the traditional stories and they certainly do enjoy reading them to the young. So many of today's books are badly written, with changes of emphasis on story line, and as for the illustrations I think a lot are an insult to a child's intelligence. This book has been badly needed for some considerable time now.

This is about as perfect a book as you can find for a two year old. As a quick example, my son has a couple of books of his favourite song The Wheels On The Bus, and each of them cost a pretty penny - and his favourite version is the one in here. I wish we'd started his library with this, we'd have saved a fortune!

I bought this for my 10 month old daugther, as I think its important to read her stories and I was getting a bit bored with 'the very hungry catepillar' (a great book, but a bit repetitive after the 57th outing!).

I'm really pleased with my purchase. It has a good variety of stories of differing lengths, so hopefully it will grow with her as she gets bigger. The pages are colourful with lots of pictures designed to appeal to children. There are also numerous rhymes throughout the book.

I agree with the comments about this making a great gift - I have a friend who is pregnant and will get her a copy so she can enjoy this with her baby.

Overall, a really good purchase

We have been reading this book to my toddler since he was 3 months old and now he won't go to bed without it. He loves the rhymes and the stories and we often have to make up a tune for rhymes as we haven't heard it before! A really good collection of classic songs and stories. We like it that much that we have just bought a new copy as the old one is a little worn around the edges. Whenever a friend or family member brings a new life into the world I always make sure I buy this as a gift.
What can I say - it's birlliant!!

We purchased one of these for our daughter's first birthday and it's lovely. So, when our son's first birthday was approaching we bought another for him too! It has a great range of stories plus shorter nursery rhymes etc. old and new tales. Great buy and hopefully something to keep for many years.
