A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES was written in simple verse that appeals to a child's nature and can be readily understood by a child. The author, Robert Louis Stevenson, was a Scotchman by birth, who, owing to ill-health, became a world traveller. During his travels he visited the United States, Australia and the South Sea Islands, he finally settled down and made his home on the island of Samoa. He continued his travels from that point, often visiting the Hawaiian Islands, Australia and New Zealand. He formed a strong friendship for the natives of Samoa, and did a great deal to improve their conditions.
