The Family Storybook Treasury, Review and Giveaway

by 5 Minutes for Books

The Family Storybook Treasury is a beautiful treasure to give, receive, and pass down.

Each wonderful picture book in The Family Storybook Treasury is followed by a poem, some a few lines, some in unique sentence structures, and one with a riddle. The poems were perfect for those nights my kids wanted to squeeze in one more story. The audio CD is a delightful bonus with the storybook, each book is accompanied by music and some also have sound effects, such as sirens in Curious George and the Firefighters.


Includes eight complete picture books:

  • Curious George and the Firefighters by Margret and H. A. Rey
  • Martha Speaks by Susan Meddaugh
  • Lyle Walks the Dogs by Bernard Waber, illustrated by Paulis Waber
  • Sheep in a Jeep by Nancy Shaw, illustrated by Margo Apple
  • Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester, illustrated by Lynn Munsinger
  • Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow
  • The Great Doughnut Parade by Rebecca Bond
