Land of enchantment

by Norman Rockwell in 1934 for the New Rochelle Public Library, New York
Re-posted from 2014:

There was a golden age of children's literature in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. There were magazines like St Nicholas, and authors like Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Louis Stevenson, George MacDonald, Howard Pyle, Edith Nesbit, and many others. ManyBooks.net provides access to many of their books in electronic form. Although I would think young readers would much prefer the actual physical books, during the "read aloud to me" phase parents might well access this resource. Today I came across these. Each is provided in formats that can be downloaded for electronic readers.
