MY SHADOW

A brief, favorite poem expanded by lively watercolors in Rand's familiar, popular style, depicting children of many races and countries (readers are left to guess locales). Rand deftly gives the kids' shadows a drama that reinforces their universal fascination, while neatly solving other illustrative problems--e.g., by visually defining ""nursie"" in an appropriate scene. While making a humanitarian point, the addition of the multicultural theme detracts from the poem's unity; still, cheerful and attractive.
