Happy hearts and happy faces,
Happy play in grassy places -
That was how, in ancient ages,
Children grew to kings and sages.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
This beautiful illustration is by the wonderful Brian Wildsmith,
one of my favorite children's book illustrators. I am completely
taken with his use of color and composition and find his work
full of joy and magic. I just purchased this book, A Child's
Garden of Verses, and all the illustrations are by Wildsmith.
I'll share some more when I get a chance.
