Overview

Thornton Burgess was born in 1874 in Sandwich, Massachusetts. While growing up he explored the fields, woods, and salt marshes of Cape Cod, where he came to know the birds, animals, and plant life well. Later, as a grown man, he told stories to his young son about the animals and wildlife he knew and loved. These stories were collected in Old Mother West Wind, the first of more than seventy books by Mr. Burgess. A companion to that perennial favorite, Mother West Wind's Children is a collection of fifteen "Why" stories: Why are Peter Rabbit's ears so long? Why does Reddy Fox have no friends? Harrison Cady's classic illustrations bring these beloved characters to life and help make this time-honored title perfect for generations of children to enjoy.

    Wonderful Children's Books

    These are stories on which members of 'The Greatest Generation' were raised. Sweet lessons on morality and ethics. Great for character building.
