These enduring poems by American master poet Carl Sandburg are perfect for a young audience, and now they have been newly illustrated with bright, colorful double-page artwork. The poems and illustrations work together, following a group of children through a day of enjoying and participating in Sandburg's poetry, observing nature, solving riddles and playing. Young readers will respond to the pastoral themes.
Sandburg lived the last twenty-two years of his life on a farm called Connemara in North Carolina, with his three daughters, Margaret, Janet, and Helga, and his wife, Paula Steichen, who raised champion goats. Sandburg described Connemara as "240 acres and a million acres of sky" and would often take walks in the surrounding woods. The birds, animals, and natural world that surrounded him at the farm resonate throughout these poems.
A prior knowledge and love of poetry are not required to appreciate the wit and insight of Sandburg's work - though a love of poetry may well result!
We have also included two of Sandburg's favorite poems:
About the Author:
Author and poet Carl Sandburg was born in 1878. He worked many jobs before becoming a writer: delivering milk, laying bricks, threshing wheat, and shining shoes. After marrying in 1908, he moved to Illinois and took up journalism as a reporter for the Chicago Daily News. Rootabaga Stories (1922) was his first book for children. During his career Sandburg won two Pulitzer Prizes: in 1940 for Abraham Lincoln: The War Years and in 1951 for his Complete Poems. Sandburg died at his home in North Carolina in 1967.
