Nursery Rhymes

A Puppet Treasure Book

This is the last book in my collection from children’s book artists Tadasu Izawa and Shigemi Hijikata. This one is full of nursery rhymes including selections from Robert Louis Stevenson to Mother Goose, counting rhymes, and “Little Nursery Rhymes” –Little Tom Tucker, This Little Pig, Jumping Joan, Jack Horner, Little Boys and Little Girls, Little Bo-Peep, Little Robin Redbreast, We Willie Winkie, and Polly Flinders. It’s a fun collection from Tadasu Izawa and Shigemi Hijikata.

Inside

My favorite rhyme is Where Go the Boats from Robert Louis Stevenson. Today has been a little rough around the edges. I think tomorrow I just might find myself down by the water where the boats go.

“Dark brown is the river,

Golden is the sand.

It flows along forever,

With trees on either hand…”

Where Go the Boats Robert Louis Stevenson
