The Turkeybird Speaks: “This is such a fun book to pick! Sometimes I pick it for bedtime and try to get my dad to read all the stories in it because it’s still just one big book, but we usually just pick one or two at a time. My favorite is the story about the penguins. There’s a goofy penguin who gets to stop some bad guys from hurting his friends and it’s so funny! I also really like the monkey one because we always used to sing the monkeys jumping on the bed song.

“There are so many fun stories in this one, you don’t want to lose it! I love reading all of the stories and if I could talk my dad into it I’d read the whole thing every night.”

Mom’s Two Cents: Together in one entire book are many reader’s childhood favorite books from Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed to Martha Speaks. The Family Storybook Treasury has numerous books that will leave you feeling nostalgic and looking for a child to pass them along to. Enjoy an afternoon of reading with your favorite child as you turn the pages of this fantastic compilation.

Coming from someone who’s shelves are usually packed to the brim the Family Storybook Treasury was an easy book to add to our collection. Who can resist not only one picture book, but half a dozen put together into one very delightful compilation? I certainly couldn’t and Littlebug & the Turkeybird both have enjoyed reading this one. As Turkeybird mentioned already we do have a couple of favorites: Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, Martha Speaks and Tacky the Penguin are our top three and the ones that get read over and over again. As a parent, though the size of the book is a daunting 300 pages, this is still a marvelous addition to our home library if for no other reason than the versatility it provides within one bound book. Not to mention the fact that it’s packed with magnificant authors and illustrators.

Family Storybook Treasury: Tales of Laughter, Curiosity, and Fun has been a delightful addition to our home library and one that I’m positive will be read again and again as it’s passed down from child to grandchild in the years to come. There’s no doubt there will be a favorite amidst the over half a dozen full picture books included within it’s pages, but regardless there will be numerous stories to be enjoyed by one and all. This has been a wonderful reading experience to have with both of my kiddos because not only are the authors and illustrators wonderful, but the versatility allows for hours of reading without losing the attention of those young readers. Definitely a picture book collection that should be added to everyone’s home library.

The1stdaughter Recommends: Ages 2 and up. A versatile compilation of picture books and poems that will give both young readers and parents hours of reading enjoyment.
