What’s a better present than a classic Beginner Book? Six of them—for less than the price of two! Following on the success of The Big Blue Book of Beginner Books and The Big Green Book of Beginner Books, we’ve taken the complete text and art of P. D. Eastman’s Sam and the Firefly, Robert Lopshire’s I Want to Be Somebody New!, Marilyn Sadler’s The Very Bad Bunny, Mike McClintock’s Stop That Ball!, Al Perkins’s The Digging-est Dog, and Joan Heilbroner’s Robert the Rose Horse and bound them together in one sturdy hardcover omnibus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Stories My little guy loved these stories, and I remember many of them from when I was a child. The Diggingest dog is easily a stand out book from when I was younger, as well as Robert the Rose Horse. And the price is much cheaper than buying these books individually

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK FOR YOUR CHILD We have the Big Green Book of Beginner Books and my 3 year old loves hearing the stories and we love reading them. We bought this book thinking it would be similar but it is truly awful. I can't even understand what the 'message' is in most of these stories, but I am disturbed my almost all the stories. In the first story the children say they don't like the changes in the main character because he is now too fat. In the story about the dog who misbehaves the other dogs recommend leaving him to drown in a whole filled with water. I have actually returned this book it is so bad but it seems there is no option for zero maple leaves.
