5.0 étoiles sur 5A classic for any child (or child at heart)9 juillet 2002
Par Catherine S. Vodrey - Publié sur Amazon.com
This classic edition of Robert Louis Stevenson's "A Child's Garden of Verses" is justly famed because it so beautifully pairs Stevenson's sometimes exuberant, sometimes melancholy poems on childhood with the extraordinary illustrations of Tasha Tudor. Tudor's delicate watercolors complement Stevenson's work almost to the point that you think the two, living in different centuries, must share some time-travel telepathy with each other. All the classic Stevenson pieces are here: "The Swing," "The Land of Counterpane," the terrific poem about a child's shadow. Tudor depicts only children and animals herein--as it should be--without the presence of shadow of adults anywhere. Both Stevenson and Tudor understand in their bones that no matter what grown-ups may think, children inhabit a world of their own. That world is mostly beautiful, but sometimes fraught with danger or questions. Those hints are present here, but the overwhelming impression any reader will have will be that of beauty--both in words and in pictures.

5.0 étoiles sur 5wonderful poems that will stay with you16 juin 2000
Par A. Creech - Publié sur Amazon.com
Like many others, I first read these poems as a very young child. I didn't realise until rereading them just recently how many of them had stayed with me. The poems all deal with sounds, sights and emotions that will be familiar to most young children. And as an adult, the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson brings back that sense of wonder and amazement that many of us lose as we grow older. One of the poems that I will always remember deals with how difficult it is to go to bed when you are told in the summer when the days are long and the sun is still out. who doesn't remember this? The illustrations in this particular edition, by Tasha Tudor, capture perfectly the childhood world of the poetry--the imagination in play is wonderfully portrayed. Remember when the space under the table became a cave, or a castle, or a spaceship? These poems and the accompanying illustrations deal with these imaginary adventures that all children share in. Purchase this book and share it with other adults and with the children in your life. If it stays with you for the rest of your life, then you have gained a treasure.

5.0 étoiles sur 5I read this 30 years ago2 mai 2000
Par A.Trendl HungarianBookstore.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Thirty years ago, I was taught to read with this. Different pictures, same poems. I learned to imagine and believe in ordinary, yet beautiful things. Even today, in my own writing, I smile realizing how and when I learned a technique ... just by listening to my mother whisper these poems nightly.
Aptly named, RLS has the reader remembering the wonderful days of playing alone and with friends, of delighting in the moment.
Your child will gain an understanding of classic children's poetry, of the rhythm and rhyme. They sound eloquent aloud, and read gentle at bedtime.

5.0 étoiles sur 5A child's Garden of Verse by Robert lewis Stevenson18 octobre 2000
Par Elizabeth J. Lamb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Truly a walk down memory lane for this 3/4 of century old heart--At one time, I knew most of them by memory--the love of my life as a child and now a chance to go back to childhood- - if only in memory. Every one young or young at heart should read it just once more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5One of the Very Best Titles in Children's Books27 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This was THE book of my childhood! I still own this book, and read it even today. I received it as a gift more than forty years ago, and it has lost none of it's original charm. This book introduces children to poetry with beautiful cadence, and uplifting, happy thoughts. The illsutrations of Tasha Tudor are lush and give additional imagination to the poetry. The stories in the poems are of a different time and place in history, but still evoke the innocence present in every child, even today...no matter our age!
