Alvin Schwartz has created a charming collection of folk poetry with And the Green Grass Grew All Around, an illustrated book for elementary readers that adults will also find interesting.

Schwartz begins the collection of over 200 poems with a poignant introduction that includes the author’s experiences with rhymes on the school yard and information about folk poets. The text is organized into 15 chapters, each including poems of certain type or subject. Chapter titles range from ‘Love and Marriage,’ ‘Teases and Taunts,’ and ‘Nonsense’ to the simple ‘A Tree’- which holds the title folk work of the book, the lyrics and musical notes for the song ‘And the Green Grass Grew All Around.’

Schwartz’s book is a high quality, well-written collection, proven by the extensive notes and sources sections following the poems. In his notes, the author writes about folk poets and the nature of oral tradition. He also touches on each of the kinds of rhymes that can be found in the book, such as nursery rhymes, autograph rhymes, counting-out rhymes. In the sources section the author includes the information and collector of each rhyme in the book if known, as well as any well-known variant version of certain rhyme. A bibliography and index of first lines complete the text.

One or more illustrations by Sue Truesdell accompany each page of this book. Her cartoon-like ink and watercolor works add to the text by book, with line, shape, and shading enabling the black and white illustrations have maximum impact on the reader. Truesdell brings the poems of this work to life with her depictions of people and animals in interesting situations.

And the Green Grass Grew All Around is a first-rate work that brings readers of all ages together through the timelessness of folk poetry. Schwartz’s book is an excellent collection of rhymes that is supported by information on poem origins and history of equal entertainment value. The resources, illustrations, and rhymes themselves make this a great book for all audiences.
