    Perfect for read-alouds.I am raising a family of boys, and finding character-shaping stories is a constant goal.We read together the first two stories in this Treasury -- very worthwhile. They also tied in perfectly with our history study of the age of idustrialization in America.

    This book is indeed a treasure. If parents read this book to their children, the benefits would be extraordinary!

    I am a Horatio alger fan because of his central theme to work ones way through adversity that concept is and always be timeless

    These stories all of them are treasure troves of old world charm and virtue. The solid, common sense values of the very people who wrested this great land from the Indians and hewed this mighty nation from the untamed wilderness shape all these popular 19th century tales for young boys.Although quaint by today's standards, they still emanate a contagious sense of old fashioned morality and home spun wisdom. This collection of tales are the perfect gift for pre-adolescent boys, providing a much needed balance to counter the unwholesome influences constantly bombarding their young, impressionable minds from popular media. They are also a refreshing oasis of nostalgia for world weary, cynical men and women considerably more advanced in years and experience.

    The Horatio Alger Treasury was excellent. I would be interested in another "Treasury" with more Alger's stories. I have a collection of his books and would like to get them all. I am 78 years young and read his books as a child. They were all designed to make young people realize that living a good, honest life was a better path to take than a dishonest one. I still adhere to his philosophy today.

    Great reads for New Yorkers curious about what life was like on our streets 150 years ago. Interesting details.
