Part of the introduction reads, "the purpose of Collier's Junior Classics is to introduce boys and girls to some of the best books ever written for children, to stimulate young readers to seek for themselves the books from which the selections have been drawn as well as other good books of similar appeal, and to encourage children to become disriminationg, thoughtful, life-time readers. author, title, and publisher are given at the foot of the page on which each selection opens. this enables readers to ask for the complete book at a library or bookstore. when necessary, brief introductions set the scene for the selection, while follow-up recommendations, complete with publishers' names, appear at the end of most stories.

Junior Classics is a series of ten individually indexed volumes. A, B, C: Go! has been lovingly compiled for the youngest, and consists of nursery rhymes , favorite folk tales, best-loved poems, and stories for reading aloud. four volumes have been assembled for the intermediate group consisting of folk and fairy tales, fantasy, warm-hearted stories of other lands, and stirring books about our own country. four additional volumes cater to the interests of more mature boys and girls: world classics, great myths and American tales, excerpts from biographies of some of the greatest men and women of the world, and selections from action and suspense stories. Finally, the most unusual of all, is the volume entitled Harvest of Holidays, a feast of stories, poems, documents, and factual material about twenty-two American national and religious holidays.

No pains have been spared to make the individual volumes a series of stepping stones to all that is best in the magic world of children's books."
