First Edition 1969. Give this book as a gift to a child and he/she will cherish it forever! What a fabulous book in excellent condition. Full color illustrations by Tasha Tudor, Margot Austin and Wesley Dennis are so beautiful! The book contains classic poems of childhood, Mother Goose rhymes and animal stories. The outside boards have some slight soiling but the inside is tight, bright and exceptionally clean. There are no chips, folds, writing or any flaws whatsoever. You really must see to appreciate.
