This would be a nice way to introduce younger readers to some of the more classic stories, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Treasure Island, Peter Pan and more.

My 5-year old's choice for classic study.

The treasury includes many of my most favorites and I love sharing them with the kids.
