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   





Sing, little bird, when the skies are blue,

Sing, for the world has need of you,

Sing when the skies are overcast,

Sing when the rain is falling fast.

Sing, happy heart, when the sun is warm,

Sing in the winter's coldest storm,

Sing little songs, O heart so true,

Sing, for the world has need of you.
