This collection pulls from several different collections such as the John M. Shaw Collection overall, the Shaw Childhood in Poetry Collection, and various other childhood literature collections at FSU. These books look at the experience of childhood through stories, poetry, songs and illustrations particularly in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
