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   




In the pleasant sunny meadows,

Where the buttercups are seen,

And the daisies' little shadows

Lie along the level green,

Flocks of quiet sheep are feeding,

Little lambs are playing near,

And the watchful shepherd leading

Keeps them safe from harm and fear.

Like the lambs we little children

Have a shepherd kind and good;

It is God who watches o'er us,

Gives us life and daily food.
