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
A PRETTY GAME
The sun and the rain in fickle weather
Were playing hide and seek together;
And each in turn would try to chase
The other from his hiding place.
At last they met to say, "Good-by,"
And lo! a rainbow spanned the sky.
