About this Item

Small 4to. 60p. of text and 12 full-page plates, four in full color. Orange cloth with black letters on the spine. Just touches of wear to extremities, cloth clean and bright, top of spine slightly faded because of chip missing from dust jacket, foxing (?) spots on the top of the textblock but not affecting the interior, all plates in fine condition, else near fine to fine with no internal markings. Dust jacket slightly darkened and with foxing spots showing on the rear panel. ¿This remarkable book consists of poems and drawings made by a child between the ages of 3 ½ and 5 ½. The poems were not written as such; they are really songs chanted by the child to himself, and taken down unobserved by his parents.¿ [from the dust jacket] Doreen Bland was the child¿s mother. Some idea of the merit of the songs may be gleaned from this one, which was composed on leaving the seaside: "Good-by Sea¿. Good-bye great flapping waves Green waves crossing one another And painting one another with spray." This is an unusual children¿s book. ¿It is delightful and interesting, but I believe its greatest contribution to me lies in the insight it gives me into the thoughts and feelings of a young child. I shall use some of the songs in teaching my class in Child Development. Lois Hayden Meek, Professor of Education, Teachers College, Columbia University.¿ [from the rear panel of the dust jacket].
