Herein you will find 9 Illustrated stories from “Golden Lands” compiled by May Wentworth. But why “Golden Lands”? Well, an introductory poem tells us why – There are orange groves and lime trees green That glint in the sunlight’s glowing sheen, There are deserts yellow with priceless sand, All these you will find in the Golden Land. Well, how else would you describe the lands of Fairydom? In the Preface of this exquisite book, Wentworth addresses all children everywhere – “In the pleasant Christmas-time I greet the children everywhere.To some I shall not be a stranger, for we have met before, not face to face, but in the pages of the last years little book. In the sunny days of childhood, a year is so long a time, that when the summer and winter have passed it seems like an age gone by; yet as again I bring my Christmas offering, I hope to be remembered and welcomed as the friend who loves the children well. They are the true critics, generous and fearless. For their warm hearts and keen appreciation, I write these stories of the Golden Clime. May the joy and blessedness of the holy Christmas rest upon them, and follow them through all the sunshine and rain of the coming year.” The stories in this volume are: The Little Lace-Maker Golden Snow Gracia And Catrina The Dancing Sunbeam The Young Gold-Seeker The Wishing Cap Crimson Tuft Snowdrop And Rosebud Lazarus And Bummer ============= TAGS: Folklore, fairy, tales, myths, legends, children’s stories, bedtime stories, Little Lace-Maker, Golden Snow, Gracia And Catrina, Dancing Sunbeam, Young Gold-Seeker, Wishing Cap, Crimson Tuft, Snowdrop And Rosebud, Lazarus And Bummer, orange groves, lime trees, green, glint of sunlight, glowing sheen, deserts, yellow sand, Golden Lands
