This early 19th-century children's poetry collection by Jane and Ann Taylor is little-known today, but contains the original version of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, known then as just The Star. Also included are poems about why you shouldn't kill kittens, birds and flies, a poem about how you can be seriously scarred if you play with fire, and a poem about a homeless man who cries himself to sleep because of how naughty he was a child.

One famous excerpt: The Star Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are! Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky. When the blazing sun is gone, When he nothing shines upon, Then you show your little light, Twinkle twinkle all the night. Then the trav'ller in the dark, Thanks you for your tiny spark; He could not see which way to go, If you did not twinkle so.
