I purchased this book as a shower gift for my great granddaughter.
Fancy Nancy
RLS's poems are delightful, but Ms. Fujikawa's watercolor illustrations add such charm and lush detail... and she perfectly captured the multicultural children.

These beautiful poems and charming illustrations keep my four-year-old riveted.

This edition was a favorite of my sister and I when we were kids. RLS's poems are delightful, but Ms. Fujikawa's watercolor illustrations add such charm and lush detail... and she perfectly captured the multicultural children. I am now the family keeper of our well-worn treasure. This is the most delightfully illustrated version (in my opinion better even than the wonderful Tasha Tudor's).

Thirty years ago, I was taught to read with this. Different pictures, same poems. I learned to imagine and believe in ordinary, yet beautiful things. Even today, in my own writing, I smile realizing how and when I learned writing technique just by listening to my mother whisper these poems nightly.

Aptly named, RLS has the reader remembering the wonderful days of playing alone and with friends, of delighting in the moment.

Your child will gain an understanding of classic children's poetry, of the rhythm and rhyme. They sound eloquent aloud, and read gentle at bedtime.

A Child's Garden of Verses stands the test of time. My friends and I all remember this book from childhood. I purchased three this Chrismas. The illustrations are delightful. Gyo Fujikawi has captured the poems exquisitely, especially "The Land of Counterpane".

This is an ageless book filled with some of Robert Louis Stevenson's most famous poems. Fujikawa beautifully illustrated it, and it is one of those beautiful children's books that you will want to hang on to long after your children have outgrown their bedtime story time.

Format: Hardcover
These beautiful poems and charming illustrations keep my four-year-old riveted. Whenever we come to some language that she doesn't understand, she asks me to explain, then nods and asks me to continue reading. The subject matter of Stevenson's poems is timeless, forever relevant to the young imagination, so the modern child is willing to work a little at his 19th century words!

This is a book we wore to ribbons on our children and grandkids. We loved reading it to them and enjoyed it as much as they did. I purchased three to have on hand as gifts for future Great grandchildren or other lucky recipients.
