Childhood Rhymes _ by James Cromwell William Craig age 8 1903 / Kiddies in the Country 1926
Author: James Cromwell William Craig the only child of Mr and Mrs Craig Steadman was born on the farm in Fayette county Kentucky November 19 1895 and was a pupil in the Lexington High School. While very young, he developed remarkable poetical talent, and was known as the “Child Poet of Kentucky”. He began expressing his thoughts in poetry when but five years old, and when eight years old a volume of his work, entitled “Childhood Rhymes” was published. Illustrations in the book were created by his mother. In this venture, he accomplished what older poets and authors often fail to do, making it a decided financial success. In the early 1900’s this little volume of verse was circulated and read in twenty seven states of our Union, and recognition of his talent had been given in various magazines and periodicals on both sides of the Atlantic.
