I picked this book up at the thrift shop and my son asks for it almost every night. It's a compilation of over 40 children's books in one 9" x 11" volume. The experience of reading books from this volume is not as good as if you had the individual book - the artwork is smaller and, in some cases, abridged and it can be an awkward size to hold, but here are the reasons why I recommend it: it's a great value, it's an introduction to books your family may enjoy enough to purchase singly and, especially as the holidays approach, it's a perfect book to take on a trip (or leave at grandma's house). You'll save a ton of space by just packing one book and there is plenty of variety in length, tone and reading level.
