Burgess loved the beauty of nature and its living creatures so much that he wrote about them for 50 years in books and his newspaper column, Bedtime Stories.
Mother West Wind's Childrenby Thornton W. Burgess, Harrison Cady (Illustrator)
Danny Meadow Mouse learns to laugh, Grandfather Frog gets even, and the Merry Little Breezes have a busy day in the second volume of Thornton Burgess's popular Green Forest series. These heartwarming tales recount the adventures of Peter Rabbit, Reddy Fox, Jimmy Skunk, Hooty the Owl, and other endearing characters. Suffused with gentle humor and embellished by George Kerr's illustrations from the original 1911 edition, the stories offer children enduring lessons about wildlife ecology. This edition includes a new Foreword by John Richmond of the Thornton W. Burgess Society.

This book is a good book! I put in 4 gold stars!
These are stories on which members of 'The Greatest Generation' were raised. Sweet lessons on morality and ethics. Great for character building.
