Overview

One of America's best loved and most distinguished poets has chosen from the vast treasure trove of his published work these verses, which he thinks are particularly suited to children, and to them he has added sixteen new poems. The reader may roam far and wide in this collection, among such groups of poems as "Corn Belt", "Blossom Themes", and "Wind, Sea, and Sky", yet never exhaust the riches of the mind and heart and imagination that Mr. Sandburg offers.

Here is America, here is humor, here are the deep rolling cadences, the contagious delight in words and sounds, the imaginative fire that make Carl Sandburg's poetry outstanding. It is a collection to enchant both young and old.
