Reviews for The Swing
Beautiful board book
I am always on the lookout for rhyming board books and this is an exquisite book, with lovely illustrations, and a simple, memorable poem with a subject which can grow with my baby. I hope that this becomes a series of famous poems for children illustrated as board books. I highly recommend this book.
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside--
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown--
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
Robert Louis Stevenson by Laura
