wynken, blynken, and nod



by eugene field, illustrated by helen page.

I can recite this sweet little poem for you if you like.
No?
Okay, then, just get this perfectly illustrated storybook.




Wynken, Blynken, and Nod sail off in a wooden shoe if you didn't know.

Aren't they cherubic?



The pages are crinkled and worn from years and years of reading.  My son liked this page best.  He used to look up at the night sky and say to me,
'Look, Mom, the old moon laughed and sang a song!'




Isn't the wind pretty?  She makes white hair look pretty fashionable.
