Because it's never too early to introduce your little ones to the joys of reading, we're offering this sweet quartet of "first" readers. In First ABC (UL2762)
, youngsters can explore the alphabet from A ("for apples rosy and red"
) to Z ("for zebra with stripes on its back"
). First Nursery Rhymes (UL2772)
teaches wee bluestockings traditional sing-a-longs such as "Little Bo-peep," "Mary, Mary, quite contrary," "Monday's child is fair of face," and "Hush-a-bye, baby." First Poems (UL2792)
collects short verse by William Blake, Christina Rossetti, Robert Louis Stevenson, and more. Measuring just 4"x5", these lovely little books were first published in the 1960s, and our reissued editions include the charming original illustrations. A wonderful gift to commemorate the christening or first birthday of the bookworm-in-training you know! (KG)
