It's a wonderful Wednesday for children's books

A Child's Treasury of Poems ~ edited by Mark Daniel, 1986, children poetry (3-9 years old), 153 pages

This collection of rhymes, verses, songs, lullabies, and jingles from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries also has reproductions of over fifty full-color paintings and fifty black-and-white engravings from the Victorian and Edwardian era.

Scholaastic Treasury of Quotations for Children
~ compiled by Adrienne Betz, 1998, quotes for children (9 - 12 years), 254 pages

A reference designed to inspire, inform, and amuse presents 1,200 quotations from ancient to modern times on topics such as cooperation, growing up, nature, success, courage, creativity, humor, and faith.  Here's one I like from page 63:
  • You see things, and you say, "Why?"  But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?" — George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
