From William Blake's "Infant Joy" to Longfellow's "My Lost Youth," this beautifully illustrated anthology celebrates childhood.

These poems capture every facet of childhood: the magic and wonder, the schooldays and holidays, the unconditional love of a parent, the memories we treasure as we grow up. Beloved writers such as William Blake, John Betjeman, Robert Louis Stevenson, Adrian Mitchell, and W.H. Auden move from infancy, and the happiness babies feel as they learn to speak, to playtime, friendships, trips, and more. Endearing illustrations throughout make this the ideal book for all those who care for children.
