Young Years is one of my very favorite collections of children's stories, fairy tales, and nursery rhymes. Even now that all my kids are more or less "too old" for the content, they still enjoy hearing me read from it occasionally, and I still love reading it. I didn't know this book when I was a child, but my wife's mother bought for her (from a door-to-door salesman!) when she was a child, and we've had a copy of the book all through our marriage.

One of the excellent things about the Young Ye

This was a favorite growing up and I got the actual book from my mom. It's pretty worn and even has a piece of duct tape holding on the cover. It's a childhood treasure I will never part with.

I love this book. I used to read it all the time when I was little. I still have the book and it's in not too bad a shape. Some wearing on the outside but no tape yet. The cover looks a little different then the cover in the picture on here. The title is in a yellow and blue box otherwise same picture. It's a great book.

Another childhood favorite, a great big old volume packed full of nursery rhymes & stories, fairy tales, poetry and fables. Probably the first fables and fairy tales I ever read and I've always loved them since.

This is a collection of poems, nursery rhymes and fairy tales. I remember having it when I was growing up and was able to find a copy at my favorite used bookstore.
This is a great collection, with nice illustrations. And it reminds me of being a kid again. Loved it.

I remember my mom buying this for me at Eaton's. 40+ years later it is still a loved volume that comes down from the bookshelf often.

I still have our copy of this beloved childhood book. It is falling apart and has ugly, red tape all over it. This is the book where I first discovered The Goops.
