This Golden Books edition, originally published in 1951, features lively, colorful illustrations by Caldecott Medalists Alice and Martin Provensen.
From the publisher:
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Robert Louis Stevenson's rhymes have charmed children and adults alike since 1885, when they first appeared to a delighted public. Stevenson's joyful exploration of the world speaks directly from a child's point of view and celebrates the child's imagination.
