Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This charming book of classic poems features heartwarming, child-friendly verse from some of the world's most renowned poets, from William Wordsworth's "The Kitten and the Falling Leaves" to Edward Lear's "The Owl and the Pussycat" to Christina Rossetti's "What Is Pink? A Rose Is Pink." Accompanied with Gyo Fujikawa's fluid, traditional illustrations, which remind us of the spirit and magic of childhood, this 118-page collection will calm and enchant readers young and old.
Children's Literature
Originally published in 1969 (Grosset & Dunlap), this charming collection of primarily English poems and verses is lovingly illustrated in the traditional manner by the Gyo Fujikawa in both color and black and white. The poems and verses are primarily by well known authors of the late 19th and early 20th century such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Christina Rosetti, Longfellow, and Kate Greenaway, as well as folk rhymes and songs. The collection ranges in length from a few lines to a whole page and is a perfect first book of poems for nightly reading to preschoolers on up. The poems cover all subject matter, from the seasons and the weather to animals and gentle lessons on morality. The right amount of illustrations will keep a youngster interested, and one finds that the illustrations become just as memorable as the poems over the years. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.

Read an Excerpt

Night The sun descending in the west,
The evening star does shine;
The birds are silent in their nest,
And I must seek for mine.
The moon, like a flower,
In heaven's high bower,
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.
Farewell, green fields and happy groves,
Where flocks have took delight.
Where lambs have nibbled, silent moves
The feet of angels bright;
Unseen they pour blessing,
And joy without ceasing,
On each bud and blossom,
And each sleeping bosom.
William Blake

    This was a childhood favorite of mine and now my kids love it! I highly recommend it and cannot fathom why people would give it 2 or 3 stars!  The artwork is very sweet and classic!

    Favorite from My Childhood

    This is one of the books from my childhood I will never part with. I am thrilled to see that it is back in print so I can buy a copy for my children that is not falling apart. I memorized many of these classic poems as a child, and spent hours looking at the beautiful pictures. The lollipop tree, the elves in their green caps with a white owls feather, even the violet by the mossy stone all come vividly alive for the young reader with Gyo Fujikawa's magical illustrations.
