Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 18 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• Nothing has ever been written that appeals to a child's nature more than "A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES." It is written in a simple verse that a child can readily understand. It was one of the earlier efforts of the author, Robert Louis Stevenson, a Scotchman by birth, who, owing to ill-health, became a world traveler. During his travels he visited the United States, spending a year among our famous resorts. Later he visited Australia and the South Sea Islands, which climate agreed with him to such an extent that he finally settled down and made his home on the island of Samoa. He continued his travels from that point, often visiting the Hawaiian Islands, Australia and New Zealand.

This classic Stevenson compilation, contrary to the description, has numerous scanning errors which make many of the poems illegible. The drawings are fabulous and given that it's a free version, it may be worthwhile to download just for the drawings. But if you want to read the poems with your children (which I highly recommend), then you should purchase a different version.

I believe that any book that has to do with a life lesson deserves to have a good review but this one deserves a special review because it teaches young children the meaning of life and the way they can live it to the fullist and you cant say that about many books but this one you can
