Overview

Since their first appearance in 1885, the rhymes of Robert Louis Stevenson have been charming children and adults alike. His joyful exploration of the world speaks directly from a child's point of view-a celebration of the imagination, excitement, and surprising practicality with which children approach life. Boats are made from back-bedroom chairs; palaces and temples constructed of blocks. There are poems about wind, rain, the beauty of stars, and the usefulness of shadows., Full of life and color, the delightful illustrations of Caldecott-winning artists Alice and Martin Provensen are the perfect accompaniment to these wonderful poems. Engaging, thoughtful, and fun, this treasure will occupy a special place in a child's heart for a lifetime.
