Author Bio

Leonard Weisgard (1916-2000) was a beloved and award-winning illustrator of more than 200 children’s books, perhaps best known for his collaboration with the author Margaret Wise Brown. His books include The Little Island (for which he won the Caldecott Medal in 1947), The Golden Egg Book, and The Golden Bunny.

Helen Ferris (1890-1969) edited numerous books for young readers and was editor-in-chief of the Junior Literary Guild from 1929–1959.

Editorial Reviews

“Among this abundance of funny poems, serious poems, story poems, poetic prose from the Bible, parents will find almost all those they want to share with their children. It makes a fat, generous, attractive book.”—Christian Science Monitor

“If your children don’t like poetry, expose them to this collection . . . and I defy them to resist its magic.”—Kirkus Reviews
