Item Description...
A collection of poems evoking the world and feelings of childhood

Publishers Description
Here is a delightful look at childhood, written by master poet and storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson. In this collection of sixty-six poems, Stevenson recalls the joys of his childhood, from sailing boats down a river, to waiting for the lamplighter, to sailing off to foreign lands in his imagination. Tasha Tudor's watercolor paintings evoke a simpler time in the past, and celebrate two of the things she loves most -- children and nature. Her talents are the perfect match for these inspiring poems, making this a handsome gift edition that will be cherished by families for generations.

A Child's Garden of Verses  Jun 7, 2008
I received this book from a friend at Christmas when I was a child. I always loved it. I sent a copy to my great granddaughters 8th birthday last year with a couple of other story books and she said she loved all of them.
Better then expected!  Apr 21, 2008
A Child's Garden of VersesI had this book of poems as a child and loved it dearly. I recently purchased this newer (artwork) version of my favorite book, and WOW was I surprised. The artwork was beautiful and added greatly to the beautiful verses. I am sure that not only the baby that I gifted this to, but his parents will love the book (and artwork) as much as I still love mine. Thank You.
classic!  Dec 29, 2007
This book brought back memories of my childhood which I can now pass down to my grandchildren.
Step Back in Time  Dec 21, 2007
To wander through your childhood, as I recently did, I highly recommend Robert Louis Stevenson's, "A Child's Garden of Verses". The illustrations combined with the poetry reminded me of my first introduction to poetry. That early experience instilled a life long love of poetry in myself which I passed along to my children. My son has become "the family poet" so I purchased this volume for him for Christmas. Poetry conveys in a few eloquent words the emotions that no other form of writing can. We would be much poorer humans without this medium.
Rare classics?  Dec 17, 2007
I was amazed at the difficulty of finding this literary classic anywhere . I checked in local stores , large franchises and even used book shops . I know I sound like my grandfather , but what is the world coming to ?! You not only had it , but shipped it immediately . My grandchildren will treasure this book as I did . Thanks !!
