A Child's Own Book of Verse, Book One
by Ada Skinner
First volume of A Child's Own Book of Verse, a three-volume set planned for use during the four primary years. This unusually fine collection of poetry was selected with the child's interests in mind. Includes sound rhymes and jingles to appeal to the ear, descriptive poems to create images in the mind's eye, lullabies and lyrics to warm the heart, and story-telling poems to stir the imagination. Attractively illustrated by Maud and Miska Petersham.  Ages 5-8
100 pages $8.95   





Said the first little chick,

With a queer little squirm,

"I wish I could find

A fat little worm."

Said the next little chick,

With an odd little shrug,

"I wish I could find

A fat little bug."

Said the third little chick,

With a shrill little squeal,

"I wish I could find

Some nice yellow meal."

Said the fourth little chick,

With a small sigh of grief,

"I wish I could find

A little green leaf."

"See here," called the hen

From the near garden patch,

"If you want any breakfast

Just come here and scratch!"
