A Child's Garden of Verses and Songs Series (Robert Louis Stevenson)

"Recommended. A creative approach to help children better conceptualize each poem." -Children's Bookwatch
"Recommended. Walter Mourant's music helps make Stevenson's 'Garden' even more enjoyable. And, today, school choruses are singing 'Child's Garden' art songs at music festivals." -Karen Bellinger, Clovis USD
The Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894), who wrote the popular novels, Treasure Island, Kidnapped and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, was also an essayist, short-story writer and excellent poet. In fact his book, A Child's Garden of Verses, is one of the world's most beloved collections of children's poetry. This unique series features many of the classic poems from the book, but with a twist: here the poetry is performed by David Baumgarten, Melody Svennungsen and Gerald Carnahan, and accompanied on piano by Nancy Piver. Original artwork was illustrated by Lois Greenal. Original music was composed and arranged by Walter Mourant. Produced by Nancy Piver. Series: 4 x 15-minute programs; 2 x 30-minute programs or 1 x 60-minute program.
