The Book of Joyous Children

In their blithe companionship

Taste again, these pages through,

The hot honey on your lip

Of the sun-smit wild strawberry,

Or the chill tart of the cherry;

Kneel, all glowing, to

The cool spring, and with it sip

The Book of Joyous Children.

Published in 1902, this is a simple poetry book for children.  However, the illustrations in this book is what caught my attention:


Wouldn’t these make great coloring pages to go with some copywork?
