Overview

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up Librarians should welcome this new edition of Under the Tree , Roberts' cycle of children's poems whose 1922 and 1930 editions are now out of print. Each of the 59 poems speaks in a clear, child's voice about the people, animals and feelings that are part of children's worlds. Each poem rings true, whether about early days when wolves stalked Kentucky (``At night they ran down out of the rocks /And bristled up their trembly fur'') or the hens that walked in the farmyard (``One of them moved and turned around, /Her feathers made a ruffled sound,'') or musings when looking at the stars (``So many that I think they must /Be sprinkled on the sky like dust''). The language, regardless of subject, is never forced, and the poems are in harmony with what children would observe. Bedford's line drawings that accompany each poem are in balance with the intimate nature of this small masterpiece. Reading the poems and handling the well-designed book makes one feel, to quote Roberts' poem ``Firefly,'' that ``A little light is going by, /Is going up to see the sky.''Kathleen D. Whalin, New Canaan Library, Conn.
