Give Yourself to the Rain: Poems for the Very Young
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Culled from Brown's notebooks of unpublished works left after her death, these poems reflect the unique thoughtfulness of children. Illustrations.
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.
