A Child's Book of Poems


This is the most darling and timeless collection of children's poetry. 

William Blake, Kate Greenaway, and Emily Dickinson are just some of the beloved poets featured in this charming anthology of 200 poems—first published in 1969.  

Gyo Fujikawa’s stunningly beautiful and classic 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.
