Description
The most popular collection of poems about childhood in the English language. A Child's Garden of Verses is the most popular collection of poems about childhood in the English language. The poems describe activities, feelings, and fantasies familiar to children. The perfectly chosen words and lively rhythms and rhymes have enchanted generations of young readers. This book includes the poems most appropriate for today's child. They are accompanied by paintings of childhood as vibrant and evocative as the words. This is a beautiful introduction to poetry and painting for parents and children to share. "Every bright word or picture... is a piece of pleasure set afloat; the reader catches it, and, if he be healthy, goes on his way rejoicing, and it is the business of art to send him, as often as possible." Robert Louis Stevenson, 1885
