Reading can be a creative outlet, and an especially formative one for kids – books inspire young readers to think and dream about worlds different from their own. It’s never too early to build a book collection, and this set of 10 volumes, the Imagination Collection from the Everyman’s Library Children’s Classics Series, is a great way to start. The books are written for readers generally 8-12 years of age, but they’re also wonderful for smaller children to grow with.
The series includes timeless works illustrated by noted artists like Arthur Rackham, Aubrey Beardsley, Walter Crane, and Kate Greenaway. They feature both color and black and white illustrations, cloth bindings, acid-free paper, silk book ribbons, and the full unabridged text as originally published.
