William Blake, Kate Greenaway, Emily Dickinson: the writers in this charming anthology of 200 poems--first published in 1969--are among literature’s most beloved. And Gyo Fujikawa’s appealing illustrations depict children of all races sweetly interacting, as well as an engagingly rendered menagerie of animals and the natural world in all its wonderment. Among the verses that children will love are Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s "Christmas Bells,” Lewis Carroll’s "The Melancholy Pig,” and Eugene Fields’ "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod,” along with proverbs, limericks, nursery rhymes, and folk songs.
