20% discount on the complete set!
Read them to your 3-5 year olds! When they are 6 or 7 they will likely read them for themselves. When they are 9 or older they will likely read them to their younger siblings, nephews, and nieces.
Before they were reprinted, two Christian Schools pre-sold together about 450 sets of all 21 books. Most of these parents had grown up with the earlier editions of about 1965 and 1978.
A child still loves a story — about a cat that ran away, about a hungry dog waiting for some scraps of meat outside a butcher shop, about an abandoned doll lying in the rain.
Each animal, each toy, has its own story. And your child wants to hear that story.
W.G. Van de Hulst was a master storyteller. He knew children. And he wrote stories children love.
Children have long been enthralled with his tales. That’s why more than three million books in this series have been sold in Europe.

To help the reader in a task which is not at all easy — for much beauty is lost through thoughtless reading — the author suggests slow reading in a natural tone of voice, with careful attention to emphasis. The reader must enjoy the story with the child. To taste the full pleasure of reading to a child, the two must roam together hand in hand as it were, through the wonderland of make-believe.
