About this title:

Synopsis:

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!

Poems:

  • Daybreak
  • Fog
  • Bluebird, What Do You Feed On?
  • Milk-White Moon, Put the Cows to Sleep
  • Spring
  • Try Being a Goat
  • White Wings
  • Bug Spots
  • Sleep Face
  • Good Night
  • Three Riddles:
    • If You Ask Your Mother
    • There Was a Zebra
    • There Are 10 Apples

We have also included two of Sandburg's favorite poems:

  • Bee! I'm expecting you!
    by Emily Dickinson
  • The Horse Named Bill,
    Lyrics by Red Lewis

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.

Lynn Smith-Ary has worked as an artist and animation filmmaker for over thirty years. Her films have won many awards, including a Genie for Pearl's Diner and first prizes in Columbus, Ohio, and Bombay for Sandburg's Arithmetic. This film, based on the poem Arithmetic by Carl Sandburg, reflects Lynn's long-standing admiration for this great poet's writing. Lynn resides in Montreal.
