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   




Between the hill and the brook, ook, ook,

Two rabbits sat in the sun, O!

And then they ate the green, green grass,

Till all the grass was gone, O!

And when they had eaten enough, nough, nough,

They sat down to have a talk, O!

When there came a man with a gun, un, un,

And fired at them over the walk, O!

But when they found they were sound, ound, ound,

Nor hurt by the gun, un, un, O!

They picked themselves up from the ground, ound, ound,

And scampered away like fun, O!

Nursery Rhyme.
