MORE FAVORITE STORIES OLD AND NEW

A grand collection of stories, some of which could be read to seven and eight year olds, many of which provide good family reading- a wide choice. There are stories of adventure and courage, tall tales, humor, fantasy, stories of animals, myths and legends, stories of America's past and of children of differing backgrounds. From the classics of Hans Christian Anderson and Homer; from famous story tellers such as Howard Pyle and Mark Twain and Joel Chandler Harris; from contemporary favorites such as Cornelia Meigs, Robert McCloskey, Elizabeth Enright, Arthur Ransome, Mabel Leigh Hunt -- Mrs. Gruenberg has provided choice for all ages and all tastes. A very valuable collection. The Child Study Association groups will be particularly fruitful as a potential market.
