A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson
Illustrated by Alice and Martin Provensen
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Robert Louis Stevenson's rhymes have charmed children and adults alike since 1885, when they first appeared to a delighted public. Stevenson's joyful exploration of the world speaks directly from a child's point of view and celebrates the child's imagination. This Golden Books edition, originally published in 1951, features lively, colorful illustrations by Caldecott Medalists Alice and Martin Provensen. The original artwork has been digitally restored for this edition-resulting in a stunning, best-ever reproduction!
