Alice and Martin Provensen's colorful illustrations, well-chosen font, and a large format make this reissue of Stevenson's classic verses much more accessible than the version I had as a child. Definitely breathes new life into what are surprisingly fresh poems for nearly a century and a half in age! ( )

Joni Lucas (Children's Literature)
Stevenson's poems and stories are American classics. Poems about rain, foreign lands, travel, windy nights, shadows, swings, cows, the moon and other fanciful things and places fill up this beautifully illustrated book of poems that would make a great gift for new parents. Tasha Tudor's watercolor illustrations help convey the historical flavor of Stevenson's work and conjure up images of simpler times for children. 1999 (orig. 1981), Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, $18.00. Ages All.

Epigraph
Dedication
To Alison Cunningham, from her boy.
First words
In winter I get up at night and dress by yellow candle-light.
(Little Golden Books edition)
A birdie with a yellow bill
Hopped upon the window sill,
Cocked his shining eye and said,
"Ain't you 'shamed, you sleepy-head!"
(Thomas Kinkade edition)
Bring the comb and play upon it!
Marching, here we come!
Quotations
It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink
With little children saying grace
In every Christian knd of place.
