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.
