The illustrations form a feature of unusual interest. Author-portraits possess an acknowledged educational value; the other pictures have been carefully selected not only to add to the attractiveness of the book, but also to interpret in some measure the spirit of the poems. An appeal to the eye will often bring home to the young reader some fresh significance which otherwise would escape his attention.
