A beautiful treasury that every child will cherish…
In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
—from Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Bed in Summer” What child’s bookshelf is complete without a superbly illustrated collection of classic poems? This exquisitely produced anthology will become a beloved family favorite. Featuring the most renowned creators of children’s verse, it makes the perfect read-aloud and an ideal introduction to poetry’s rhyme and rhythm. Kids will love listening to the imaginative words of Lewis Carroll (“How Doth the Little Crocodile?”); Kate Greenaway (“The Cats Have Come to Tea”); Edward Lear (“The Owl and the Pussycat”); Vachel Lindsay (“The Little Turtle”); and many others. As in the previous Treasury titles, Linda Bleck’s colorful artwork has a fresh, fun feel that will appeal to children.
