A Child's Garden of Verses is a collection of poetry for children by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson. The collection first appeared in 1885 under the title Penny Whistles, but has been reprinted many times. It contains about 65 poems including the cherished classics "Foreign Children," "The Lamplighter," "The Land of Counterpane," "Bed in Summer," "My Shadow" and "The Swing." The classical scholar Terrot Reaveley Glover published a translation of the poems into Latin in 1922 under the title Carmina non prius audita de ludis et hortis virginibus puerisque.

The artist Paul Klee said that "drawing is taking a line for a walk." This book invites you to take color for a walk through an English Country House and Garden.There are lots of plants, flowers and country images for you to color as well as sections where you can use your own ideas to grow the garden in new ways. My hope is that you color outside the lines that I've drawn and develop these images further with your own creativity, and that you find peace and quiet and time for reflection as you do so.
