The Important Book.
Harper & Brothers, New York 1949 - First edition of this charming early work by Margaret Wise Brown. Quarto, original illustrated boards. Some rubbing to the bottom boards, near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Illustrated By Leonard Weisgard. The important thing about The Important Book -- is that you let your child tell you what is important about the sun and the moon and the wind and the rain and a bug and a bee and a chair and a table and a pencil and a bear and a rainbow and a cat (if he wants to). For the important thing about The Important Book is that the book goes on long after it is closed.What is most important about many familiar things -- like rain and wind, apples and daisies -- is suggested in rhythmic words and vivid pictures. 'A perfect book . . . the text establishes a word game which tiny children will accept with glee.' [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
