A Child's Garden of Verses

By Robert Louis Stevenson

This book celebrates children and nature through poetry. Throughout sixty-six poems, the author recalls the joys of his childhood, from sailing boats down the river to waiting for the lamplighter to sailing off to foreign lands in his imagination. Its poetry can be used to introduce the topics and techniques to children as well as connect them to agriculture. From golden apples to meadows or climbing cherry trees and enjoying the activities of a cow, these poems celebrate the farm life of the 19th century.
