Publisher Comments:

William Blake, Kate Greenaway, Emily Dickinson: the writers in this charming anthology of 200 poems—first published in 1969—are among literatures most beloved. And Gyo Fujikawas 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 Longfellows “Christmas Bells,” Lewis Carrolls “The Melancholy Pig,” and Eugene Fields “Wynken, Blynken, and Nod,” along with proverbs, limericks, nursery rhymes, and folk songs.

my sisters and i grew up reading this collection of poems (originally printed in 1969). we found it while digging through my dad's bookshelves for old treasures. and this i truly a treasure! the pictures are beautiful and whimsical... and the poems are still capturing.. i read about thirty of them to my nieces the other night.. they wouldn't let me stop!
