Give Yourself to the Rain: Poems for the Very Young

Give Yourself to the Rain: Poems for the Very Young Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Margaret Wise Brown once observed, "To write well for children, one must love the things that children love." And write well for children she did — with a deep love for and a keen perception of all things great and small in the world around us.

Collected here for the first time are twenty-four of Margaret Wise Brown's children's poems, which range in subject from jig-dancing pigs and the wild sound of the wind to the colors of a summer day and the joy of giving oneself to the rain.

With a foreword by noted children's literature scholar and Brown biographer Leonard S. Marcus, and illustrated with vibrant and sensitive paintings by Teri L. Weidner, Give Yourself to the Rain is a precious gift to be shared among children and adults everywhere.

Synopsis:

Culled from Brown's notebooks of unpublished works left after her death, these poems reflect the unique thoughtfulness of children. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

This never-before-published collection of poems by the beloved author were discovered in Ms. Brown's notebooks after her death and reflect the unique thoughtfulness of children. These poems celebrate a child's curiosity and wonder. Full-color illustrations.
