The poems in Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses have been popular ever since the book's first appearance more than one hundred years ago, and none more so than "My Shadow," a traditional favorite for reading aloud. Glenna Lang has created a visual narrative depicting a young girl's travels through a dream nighstcape with her shadow companion. Beautifully true to the sense and spirit of Stevenson's work, the illustrations add their own grace and rich atmosphere to Stevenson's popular poem. This edition of My Shadow is a wonderful way to enjoy an old favorite bedtime poem with the youngest child.
