Abstract:

Grades 4 and up.

Now think of words. Take sky and ask yourself just why- Like sun, moon, star, and cloud- It sounds so well out loud, And please so the sight-When printed black on white. Here are loving words, wrote Anne Carroll Moore of David McCord's Far and Few, "freshly minted and invigorated by the application to what children see and touch, fell and know. Here are 48 new poems (including 3 which together contain 50 short verses) by the author of Far and Few, all with the same sense of humor and the fine and diversified sense of words and their rhythm which brought such unstinted praise to the author for his first book of children's verse.
