A.A. Milne's writing reaches the hearts of readers of all ages. His poems weave together the worlds of reality and enchanting make-believe. And they are paired perfectly with Ernest H. Shepard's whimsical illustrations.

In all likelihood, your mother or father read you these poems and remember their parents reading the same. This collection of poetry by the creator of Winnie the Pooh was first published in 1924. With its companion volume Now We Are Six, the little books became two of the biggest bestsellers in publishing history. Children all over the world have heard about changing the guard at Buckingham Palace; James James Morrison Morrison Weather by George Dupree; the three little foxes who kept their handkerchiefs in cardboard boxes; and, of course, Christopher Robin, named for A.A. Milne's son. Adults and older children will enjoy Milne's poems too, as some of his humor is subtly directed at a more sophisticated audience. But younger children are the ones who love the naughty Mary Jane (lovely rice pudding again?) and the bears on the corners of London's streets. Read these poems aloud and pass along (or start) a family tradition. (Ages 5 to 9)

From the Inside Flap:

When We Were Very Young, the first of A.A. Milne?s four world-famous books for children, introduced Christopher Robin to innumerable friends, and has probably been read more widely than any other book of verse for children published in our time.

For sheer delightfulness the children?s rhymes of A.A. Milne are in a class by themselves, with their charm, humour, and understanding ? to say nothing of their irresistible rhythms.

Ernest H. Shepard?s illustrations are an important complement to the verses. A.A. Milne has here created a book of proven classic quality, a book that goes straight to the heart.
