by Edna Casler Joll
illustrated by Vivien Kubbos

This is one of the most beautifully illustrated books I have seen

Beautiful full page spread oil paintings interpret a poem written in 1944 celebrating the child
Lines from the poem accompany each of the stunning paintings on each page

The publisher of this book learned of the poem from her grandmother, who had a copy of the poem in her scrapbook. She dedicated this book to her grandmother.

The lines of the poem are provided below:

Every child should know a hill
And the clean joy of running down its long slope
With the wind in his hair
He should know a tree--
The comfort of its cool lap of shade
And the supple strength of its arms
Balancing him between earth and sky
So he is the creature of both.
He should know bits of singing water--
The strange mysteries of its depths
And the long sweet grasses that border it.
Every child should know some scrap
Of uninterrupted sky to shout against,
And have one star dependable and bright
For wishing on.

Beautiful. Very special book.
