A Child's Garden of Verses is a book of poems that captures the adventure and imagination of childhood. This book is a collection of his poems about the joys of author Robert Stevenson's (Treasure Island and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde fame author, among other popular books he wrote) childhood.

Stevenson cannot simply sit quietly on a shelf. His works beg to be lifted and opened for new worlds to discover. As a child, he was lonely and ill and many of the poems in this collection for children exude that sense of isolation. This poetry book is so very simple, yet so very charming. The topics are all things that children would want to read about, which makes for a very fitting title. Stevenson explores the mind of a child so very well.

If you want a book of traditional poetry, the kind the politicians and educationalists and general old old persons are always complaining that no one reads or writes these days, this would be the one.

So beautiful and childlike, not in the simplicity of the poems but in Stevenson's incredible way of showing the mind of a child. These are poems for any child . These are poems of imagination and play. These are poems from a child's view point written by a man of great literary talent. These are poems you can read over and over to a child or read just for the sheer pleasure by yourself. These are poems of beauty and childhood.

This book is the favorite book of poetry for many, children and adults alike, and it has served many, many for generations and has withstood the test of time.

A wonderful collection and addition to your library, happiness and inspiration!

From the FOREWORD .

To the city dweller, the Suburban resident, and to all who only have a small piece of ground that you think worthless, wherever you may reside, should you be so fortunate as to secure this book, do not cast it aside, but study it, as it will enable you to make profitable and beautiful, that which has been an eye-sore and a menace to health, in so many instances "The Back Yard."

"If he who causes two stocks of grass to grow where one grew before is a public benefactor,"

What shall we call him, who causes vegetables to grow and flowers to bloom in places that before were unsightly and often- unhealthy, and at the same time becomes places of beauty, pleasure and pride.

I have known the compiler of this little volume for years, and it has always been his ambition to see the waste places beautified and the back yards become places of as much or more pride than the front, and with this idea in view this little volume is offered. Could you but see some of the transformations that he has wrought, you would exclaim why was this not done before. The compilations are not theoretical, but the result of practical experience and the instructions so simple that any intelligent person can follow, and get good results, as all technical terms are left out.

It is to be hoped that the efforts put forth will be the cause of much pleasure and profit to those who may. study its pages. Spend your spare moments profitably and pleasantly in following the directions herein laid down.
