This includes a lot of Nursery Rhymes either featuring animals, or featuring animals through the illustrations. They are all beautifully illustrated, of course.

We have a little garden,
A garden of our own,
And every day we water there
The seeds that we have sown.

When the hummers start humming and the jays start squawking, and the woodies start pecking and the raptors start hawking, I take out my little book of Beatrix Potter verses because spring is in full

blossom. The 1983 Ariel publication is my favorite because Allen Atkinson did the illustrations with such love, you believe the little baby bunnies on the cover really put on their jammies for bedtime storytelling. Atkinson left us too soon, and I rejoice when I find one of his books.

We love our little garden,
And tend it with such care,
You will not find a faded leaf
Or blighted blossom there.

Never a bad thing to get another take on classic rhymes I suppose though this one seems a bit characterless. Maybe we're far away enough from the late Victorian era now that Beatrix Potter just doesn't make sense.
