The Lovereading4Kids comment
Along with Lavender's Blue by Kathleen Lines, this book is one of July 2011 Guest Editor Anne Fine's choices:
"Everyone talks about how hard it is to introduce poetry to children, but that’s nonsense. Just start here. They’re rich and colourful, with rhythms that make them easy to read and fix in the brain. And since they mirror so many of a child’s everyday experiences, they catch their attention at once."
The Good Book Guide Review. Evocative of a past way of life with Nursie. lamplighters and lead soldiers. Robert Louis Stevenson's poems so rich in child vision, have a lasting appeal. This edition has the additional magic of Michael Foreman's glorious illustrations both in colour and black and white.
