"The examples of the delightful drawings of Miss Kate Greenaway given in the following pages have been selected from her well-known children's books and calendars. Included in the former are 'Under the window' and 'A day in a child's life.' Young eyes are keen to recognise beauty. Thus, in giving a selection of the work of some of our great artists in the form of a series of painting books, of which this volume is one; the aim has been to place the child on a simple road of appreciation of all that is best in art. The earlier the introduction, the sooner will a desire manifest itself for those forms of art that help so much to beautify our lives. Simple practical directions for colouring are given at the end of this book."--Inside of front cover.
