Shari Lewis writes "To the Parents": "Many of our basic children's stories are well worth passing on as part of our cultural heritage.

I am nearly 40 and I still remember this book. Had a hard time remembering the title, but I remember having and reading this book many times.

One of the greatest books for kids ever written! My Dad used to read me stories from this book at night- and I would always ask for "just one more." The re-telling of some of the classics are included (like "Rumpelstiltskin") and an original little gem called "Why the Cat Washes After Meals." But my favorite, and one I heard so many times I can still recite it word-for-word, is "The Lion and The Mouse." This poem is sure to be some other child's favorite, as it was mine... and still is!
