Originally published in 1885, A Childâs Garden of Verses has served as a wonderful introduction to poetry for each new generation. Stevensonâs beloved poems celebrate childhood in all its complexity and joy, from the sunny pleasures of ÂAt the Seaside,â to the imaginative musings of ÂForeign Landsâ to the playful, ever-popular ÂMy Shadow.â Of the many available editions, Gyo Fujikawaâs is one of the sweetest and most personal. Illustrated in 1957, it was her very first bookÂand she evokes a simpler, more innocent time that should profoundly appeal to todayâs audiences. It is a gift that every child will treasure.
