    1. You couldn t honestly say that none of these rhymes were inane, but what s remarkable is how few of them are Greenaway is perhaps enad than anyone alive today can be of garden parties and elegant teas, but she often successfully breathes some of the strangeness and mystery of nursery rhymes into these short poems Compare them with the insipid products of an Eliza Lee Follen, for example, and see how strong is the oddity of the Sun Door, or Wonder World.Also the art is without peer.


    2. Borrowed it from the library I work at a blessing and a curse to work at a library and read it in a day Some reviewers protest to it not being something actual children would enjoy Well, I cannot determine if that is true or not for the children of today but I know this is something that I as a child would have loved I would have memorized the words and dreamed up stories for all the images In fact, I found myself a little sad that I didn t know the rhymes by heart already, that I had not grown [...]



    3. From a historical perspective, this book and its illustrations reflect the time it was written in an age of very polite society in which every good, polite child must heed their beautiful pure mother, all while donning the frilliest frippery you can imagine The illustrations are beautiful, to be sure, but there s no depth here everything is meant to be pretty And have I mentioned polite Indeed.As another reviewer has pointed out, the modern child will have some issues relating to its language an [...]


    4. I do wish that 1001 Books for Children would stop recommending these books It is not that rhymes and nursery s are not cherished by adults It s simply that I have yet to find a child who enjoys them I understand there is probably someone out there that is going to correct me and gush about how much their children loves these sorts of books.In which case, that s wonderful Majority wise, I think these rhymes are intriguing to adults than children Then again, that s just based on the children in m [...]


    5. I read the original 1885 version from the antique section of the library and it felt like reading a secret, historical treasure The whimsical poems and drawings deal with daily life for the upper class in the 1880s Unfortunately, daily life has changed dramatically since then and the book as a whole dosn t translate very well to the modern child The young boys are wearing girls clothes The girls don t do anything but drink tea and go to parties.This book was facinating to me as a social record W [...]


    6. Little girls were raised to be well bred, little girls They had different books to little boys because, well, boys only read intelligent books But don t get us started The illustrations of gorgeous golden curled, blue eyed girls are truly beautiful if a little repetitive There are no fathers, grandfathers or uncles There s no brothers over the age of 2 Grandmamma features a number of times, and, with wry smile, I do like how Kate Greenaway thought Grandmammas were stuffy, boring and children nee [...]


    7. This book of poems written and illustrated by Kate Greenaway is VERY 19th century Words like cowslip and gay as in happy appear, and eye color is ALWAYS blue and hair is ALWAYS golden curls Many of the poems are very nice, but I think this extremely feminine book will appeal to only certain kids I say feminine because the vast majority of the illustrations are of girls and most of the poems feature girls I do sort of wonder if Kate Greenaway was the Shel Silverstein of her day


    8. Kate Greenaway lived from 1846 to 1901 Her poetry is for young misses and masters of a different time and of some refinement reading it gives us post modernists a window into the Victorian era, a time when children were idealized as purity itself However, I enjoy Greenaway as illustrator hence a four star rating.


    9. If I owned than one copy of this lovely book, I d cut one of them up and frame the illustrations So lovely The poems are easier to appreciate than what was presented in Lavender s Blue I could definitely imagine holding a tot in my lap and reading these poems to them and discussing the pictures.


    10. Kate Greenaway is a delightful artist though admittedly there is something vaguely kewpie dollish about her moppets , but she s an indifferent poet, at best The verses here are inoffensive but unmemorable, and not particularly sound, metrically Nice to look at, but not much to say, really.









    11. Fairly standard turn of the century children s poetry with enchanting, idealized, romantic Victorian illustrations.
