Description

A collection of classic rhymes, songs, lullabies, and fairy tales, The Oxford Nursery Treasury collects the most-loved poetry and prose for young children in a single, beautifully illustrated volume. From the story of "The Hare and the Tortoise" to "The Porridge Pot," from "Bobby Shaftoe" to "Down With The Lambs," there is something here for everyone to enjoy. Stories about animals alternate with poems about magical adventures, which then give way to nursery rhymes, songs, and nonsense verse, followed by more tales about kings and princesses and heroes. Ian Beck's exquisite illustrations create an evocative childhood world which lingers in the imagination long after closing the book.show more
