    Quick read since there are so many pictures. Anyone who loves children's literature and wants to build a library of the classics will enjoy this book. The authors highlight some of the best books of the past 100 plus years, and it was fun to find some of both my and my children's childhood favorites. I certainly am not into spending thousands of dollars to get first editions and signed copies, but I did enjoy Lauren Zittle's (the author's wife) summaries of her favorites.

I now have a list of new titles to read to my grandchildren.

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I enjoyed seeing the books from my childhood and finding ones that I had not read.

    An interesting book! I never knew how much some of these first edition texts could sell for!

    This is actually a guide to how much your children's book would fetch you if you decided to sell it. Books from as far back as the late 19th century to as recent as the early 21st century are listed, with their last-sold price at auctions, details about the book's author, and sometimes a bit more background to the title/series as well. Illustrations abound - all titles have accompanying pictures, all in colour.

The walk down memory lane was nice though.

    I picked this up at the library because I needed something to look at in three minute blocks of time as we unpacked, and I do love collecting children's books. I would say this is very interesting on many levels (can you guess the most expensive illustrator at auction?) but HOLY HELL, THE TYPOS. I lost count at six, which is unacceptable. And not just shoddy editing of changed sentence structure, but Caldecott spelled Cadecott once (GAH) and Claire Vanderpool spelled Vanderpoo once (GAH GAH).

I also was vaguely annoyed by some repetition–books mentioned more than once in little feature blurbs in different sections, that type of thing. But I would still recommend it as a fun little primer on what books are worth.

    This book brought back so many memories of books from my grandparents generation on down to my grandkids You don't have to be a collector to love this book. This was the first book I won through goodreads.
