Lyrics are included with the album

This, the fifth album from Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan, and marks the first double album of his career and one of the first box sets in rock music. It was released in the United States in December of 1967 (Epic Records L2N 6071 (monaural) / B2N 171 (stereo)) and in the United Kingdom on April 16, 1968 (Pye Records NPL 20000 (monaural) / NSPL 20000 (stereo)). In December of 1967, Epic Records released each of the two records from A Gift from a Flower to a Garden as separate albums in the US. The first record was released as
Wear Your Love Like Heaven, and the second record was released as For Little Ones. This was done to allow budgeting for the double album package, which included a folder of the printed lyrics to the second disc with artwork, and a cover featuring an infrared photo of Donovan (requiring six colour separations for printing, instead of the usual four separations). The back cover photo was a standard one, and depicted Donovan visiting with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

In the album's liner notes, Donovan explained his purpose in creating two rather different discs (one for the present generation, and the other for the dawning generation)
