Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bold type for bedtime reading! Phoebe's ability to write a story that rolled off the tongue was a rare talent. I have cherished her books for decades. What is great about this collection? Trim size. It is bigger and easier to read in dim light. Be prepared one good Gilman tale offen follows another. You may just have to read this volume cover to cover but you won't studder (thanks Phoebe) and should your eyes be a little tired they certainly won't feel the strain! A perfect gift for 3 and up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great treasury that will be loved for years! The Jillian Jiggs series was a favourite of mine when I was a little girl, so naturally I am content reading the stories over and over again as a parent! My son loves the sing-song rhymes in the stories and the great colourful pictures. I definitely recommend the treasury to all parents of young children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A treasury to treasure! I bought this book for my two-year-old because she reminded me soo much of the main character, Jillian. The instant i brought it out for her she started flipping through it. She has asked me everyday since to have this read to her. the 5 stories are so easy to read, and the illistrations are beautiful... im thrilled with this book it was worth every penny.
