A perfect piece for the beginning treble choir. The text depicts wonderful pictures, and its engaging and spunky adjectives will surely make the children smile. A single melody is used for all four verses with variation coming from the dynamics and tempi.

PreSchool-Grade 3-- Rand's joyous watercolors burble with vivacity, giving Stevenson's much-loved poem both vigor and exuberance . Carefree children swing on a tire, run up steps in an urban neighborhood, play ball before an Oriental temple, frolic around an Italian fountain, stroll with a British nurse, and dash along a South Sea beach, confirming the universality of children playing, and how, when the light is right, they all have shadows performing strange antics. Perhaps most striking is the spread for "And he sometimes gets so little that there's none of him at all"--an African mother and child in colorful native garb look down sedately at small puddles of shadows around their bare, upturned toes. The poem itself should be part of every child's literary background , and Rand's illustrations provide a new accessibility. Unity, peace , and harmony are woven into an exceptional book to share with children .
