Sung under the Silver Umbrella:
Poems for Young Children

Selected by the Literature Committee
of the Association for Childhood Education

Beautifully illustrated by Dorothy Lathrop


Third Printing (October 1936) of First Edition (May 1935


Sung under the Silver Umbrella: Poems for Young Children would have been one of the first anthology publications commissioned by the Association for Childhood Education.

The Association for Childhood Education, formed in 1931, has a long history, going back to the establishment of the Kindergarten movement in the U.S. in 1892. In 1946, "International" was added to the organization's name, reflecting a concern regarding the reconstruction of educational facilities in war zones.

This book has more than 225 poems selected for children---designated by the committee as poems every child should read as part of his education.


On the flyleaf, this copy is carefully inscribed:
Best regards to our President
Early El. Club 1937-1938


I found this copy in North Texas, but I have no idea which club of the ACE is referenced in the inscription. Many of the clubs were attached to colleges, but others were statewide clubs and community clubs.
