"The Geranium on the Window Sill Just Died But Teacher You Went Right On" was written by Albert Cullum and is illustrated by 28 various artists in a range of styles.
The dust jacket reads, "One by one, children in various schoolrooms speak through the poems in this book. Their voices are as different from one another as the pictures that illustrate them. Variously, they are wistful, fearful, sometimes sharp with a young cynicism, sometimes pleading. Children will recognize themselves in these voices. Adults will hear the voices and be amazed."
The poems are works of art in themselves but when paired with the amazing illustration this book is a masterpiece! Published in 1971 this is the seventh printing. The book is signed by the author and is complete with its dust jacket.
It is in excellent vintage condition. The dust jacket price has been clipped. It is clean and bright with no tears. The inside pages are clean and the colors of the illustrations are spectacular.
A true piece of art in a rare type of book.
