Gathered in this weighty (literally) volume are eight picture books and eight poems. Beloved characters such as Martha the dog, Curious George, Lyle the crocodile, and Mike Mulligan make this an attractive package (not to mention the shiny gold foil book jacket). Not an essential purchase, but a handsome gift edition. A CD of the eight stories is included.
Publishers Weekly
Eight classic picture books are reproduced, interspersed with poems, in this diverse yet harmonious keepsake collection. The selections-Curious George and the Firefighters, Lyle Walks the Dogs, Martha Speaks, and others-include their original artwork and share an upbeat, humorous tone. Readers can easily enjoy them in succession or skip around, while such poems as Calef Brown-s -The Egret,- Nickki Grimes-s -Cater­pillar,- and Kristine O-Connell George-s -Tree Horse- provide reflective pauses between stories. An audio CD is included. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2&12; Some of the selections in this varied collection of picture books and poems are well known and loved, such as Susan Meddaugh's Martha Speaks , Eileen Christelow's Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed , and Bernard Waber's Lyle Walks the Dogs . With the exception of Virginia Lee Burton's Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel (1939), all were published after 1985. The editors chose to include a 2004 "Curious George" story, written in the style of H. A. and Margret Rey, rather than one of the original titles. Nancy Shaw's Sheep in a Jeep , Helen Lester's Tacky the Penguin , and Rebecca Bond's The Great Doughnut Parade round out the anthology. The poetry includes a mix of simple, complex, humorous, and thoughtful selections from Nikki Grimes, Calef Brown, Doug Florian, and Bob Raczka, among others. An audio CD is included, read by a diverse and expressive cast of narrators. Rich sound effects and background music set mood and pace, although there are no chimes to indicate page turns.&12; Suzanne Myers Harold, Multnomah County Library System, Portland, OR
