Storky-Lork, Storky-Stork

I'm smitten with storks, especially the vintage variety, so you'll forgive me for sharing a nursery rhyme from Holland which seems to be uninspired, poorly translated, or both.

The Stork

Steal a twig,
Stork loves babies small and big.

But, oh, isn't the illustration lovely!

In Tales Told in Holland, edited by Olive Beaupre Miller, illustrated by Maud and Miska Petersham, part of the My Travelship series, published by The Book House for Children, Chicago, copyright 1926.

I LOVE this kind of illustration! Dreamy! I have a bunch of old books for kids from then with all kinds of weirdo rhymes and made-up words. They're great.

Actually-- mine are published by the Book House, too! No wonder.
