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

This book reminds me of Aesop Fables it has short stories some of which I read as a child. Great for naptime.
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!

My dad used to read these to me before bedtime. Great memories.
