Kristina (kristinaonearth) | 1 comments Hello! I'm looking for the title of a book that I used to have when I was a child. There were several short poems inside by multiple authors. One author I can remember being in the book is Christina Rossetti (The Caterpillar). I only remember her because we share the same name.

The cover is bigger (think textbook size for height) and the picture is of a blonde little girl and I think she is picking flowers. It would've been published somewhere in the time range of 1988-1997.

The inside is illustrated and I think it's mostly of similar images-little kids in gardens or nature.

I searched worldcat.org with Christina Rossetti and Caterpillar and found Animal Friends: A Collection of Poems for Children, selected and illustrated by Michael Hague.
