The Children's Hour by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Illustrated by Glenna Lang

David R. Godine, Publisher

Of all Longfellow's beloved poems none is so personal, so sunny, or so touching as this affectionate love letter to his daughters. The visual narrative is set in the poet's historic house in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he spent most of his adult life.

From Publisher's Weekly:
"One of Longfellow's best-known poems, a loving tribute to his three young daughters…. Clean-cut illustrations gleam with light as they capture the poem's playful spirit and highlight a father's tenderness toward his mischievous offspring."

From the New York Times Book Review:
"The illustrations to this edition of Longfellow's charming poem show 'grave Alice, and laughing Allegra, and Edith with golden hair' in a pretty and happy Victorian home."
