This was one of my 4 books as a child. My original copy was very beat up. Hence these 2 newer editions. ( )

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.

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!
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.
