Childcraft - Poems and Rhymes
This is amazing! Childcraft is an anthology that was originally created in the 1930's by the publishers of the World Book Encyclopedia. Some of the other volumes of Childcraft include Stories and Fables, Children Everywhere, World and Space, About Animals, How Things Work, What People Do, Holidays and Customs, Make and Do, etc. My volume of Poems and Rhymes is a 1975 edition. It is fantastic to have these beautiful poems, photos, and illustrations all in one place. Gyo Fujikawa illustrated the 'Trees' poem, Ezra Jack Keats did the gorgeous second-last picture here, and Alice and Martin Provensen did the last one for 'The Owl and the Pussycat'. So fun!
