A Child's Garden of Verses
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, Feb 1, 1999 - Juvenile Fiction - 72 pages
Here is a delightful look at childhood, written by master poet and storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson. In this collection of sixty-six poems, Stevenson recalls the joys of his childhood, from sailing boats down a river, to waiting for the lamplighter, to sailing off to foreign lands in his imagination. Tasha Tudor's watercolor paintings evoke a simpler time in the past, and celebrate two of the things she loves most -- children and nature. Her talents are the perfect match for these inspiring poems, making this a handsome gift edition that will be cherished by families for generations.

A wonderful book to read to childrenUser Review - lev123456 - Overstock.com
I havent seen this edition but I grew up on these verses. I loved them and think that reading to children when they are infants inspires a love or words as they grow. It certainly did for me. Read full review
