Originally published in 1885, A Childs Garden of Verses has served as a wonderful introduction to poetry for each new generation. Stevensons beloved poems celebrate childhood in all its complexity and joy, from the sunny pleasures of At the Seaside, to the imaginative musings of Foreign Lands to the playful, ever-popular My Shadow. Of the many available editions, Gyo Fujikawas is one of the sweetest and most personal. Illustrated in 1957, it was her very first bookand she evokes a simpler, more innocent time that should profoundly appeal to todays audiences. It is a gift that every child will treasure.
