I think I have settled on using ELTL next year with a couple of my kids and I am now trying to find some lovely illustrated versions of a few classics. If you know of some that you have seen/enjoyed and can point me in the right direction I would be so grateful. I prefer unabridged and while they don't need to be hardback it is definitely my preference. Amazon has soooo many and the same reviews pop up for various versions so I cannot trust I am reading a review for the book I am considering. I am looking for:

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Peter Pan
Alice ' s Adventures in Wonderland
Through the Looking Glass
The Blue Fairy Book
A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys
Wind in the Willows

I am super old school when it comes to books so I don't do kindles. ;)

We are using that curriculum, too! We have a hard cover copy of Wind in the Willows. I don't know if the paperback on amazon has the color plates in it.  https://www.amazon.c... willows ernest

We like the Alice books with the flamingo cover. Coralie Bickford-Smith illustrated them.

For Peter Pan‚Äč, we used the one illustrated by Robert Ingpen. But it strangely doesn't seem to be available new anymore.

For Alice's Adventures in Wonderland  and Through the Looking Glass, we used the ones illustrated by Hellen Oxenbury.

For Wind in the Willows, we used the one illustrated by Michael Hague.

You guys are the best! I just went and placed orders :)

Anyone else with Blue Fairy and Wonder Book recommendations? Those ones are making my head spin.

While I am asking about books...anyone have a Beatrix Potter illustrated favorite as well?

It's been a while, so my details may be off, but my library has all of her stories in cute little hardback books. They're maybe 4x6 and 50-60 pages each (about a paragraph per page), with plenty of color illustrations (every page, if I'm remembering correctly).
