Recommends it for: anyone cool.

Then I started getting specific - I asked for first editions for my birthday or christmas. Now I have a wonderful set of books that I will keep forever that remind me of being read to and will inspire me to read to little kids, too. ...more

I'm not sure why I didn't pick these books up sooner after I got them from my grandmother. They are simply wonderful. I can't stop looking at the pictures and returning to the stories I've always enjoyed. ...more
