Originally published in 1885, A Child’s Garden of Verses has served as a good looking introduction to poetry for each new generation. Stevenson’s beloved poems celebrate childhood in all its complexity and joy, from the sunny pleasures of “On the Seaside,” to the imaginative musings of “Foreign Lands” to the playful, ever-popular “My Shadow.” Of the many to be had editions, Gyo Fujikawa’s is likely one of the sweetest and most personal. Illustrated in 1957, it used to be her very first book—and she evokes a simpler, more innocent time that are meant to profoundly appeal to as of late’s audiences. This is a gift that each child will treasure.
