Silver Pennies

I admit I have a weakness for poetry, so don't be surprised if a lot of poetry books make it onto this list!  This sweet vintage volume has wonderful black and white illustrations and a nice collection of poems about nature and fairies.  Each poem has an introduction that helps the reader understand or think about what they are about to read. 

Blanche Jennings Thompson 1931
illustrated by Winifred Bromhall

Can you imagine if children were taught to read poetry like the following verse- Souls, learning about language and morals and beauty?

One of my very favorites is Moon Folly
