    Like When We Were Very Young, this is also a terrific compilation I love it when an adult can see through a child s eyes without losing his adult ness Milne s poetry is simple and beautiful, and his humour can be enjoyed by adults and children alike.Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh need no introduction Quite a few of the poems in this book are about the duo Milne accomplishes the extraordinary feat of seeing from the realistic and make believe viewpoint at the same time something which comes as second nature to children, but we lose it as we grow up therefore, Pooh is a live character to Christopher, even when he knows that he is nothing but a toy the poem Us Two and The Friend.There are a lot of nonsense poems about silly grownups, quite a few of them kings and emperors, but behaving like spoilt children a child s view of himself, maybe Or a rather uncomfortable thought is it so childish Don t dictators behave like spoilt kids on a rampage with much deadlier results than Milne s characters produce, of course There are poignant poems of a child s world which so incomprehensible to adults so that they shoo him away Come Out With Me Also, there is the delight only a child can experience, such as a race between two raindrops Waiting At The Window There are even profound philosophical questions which plague a young mind Explained.But for me, the poem which captures the quintessence of childhood in this collection is Buttercup Days, about Anne and her man , especially these four lines What has she got in that little brown head Wonderful thoughts which can never be said.What has she got in that firm little fist of hers Somebody s thumb, and it feels like Christopher s.Anne and Christopher, among the buttercups Pure childhood bliss Five stars, all the way.

    When I was very young, I eyed this book cautiously.Six seemed immeasurably ancient I feared being infected with age.

    Now We Are Six is a collection of poetry by A A Milne and contains poems not only of Pooh Bear who claims he was looking for Piglet and wandered through this book by mistake , but also of the Knight Whose Armor Didn t Squeak, the Two little Bears, Alexander the Beetle, and bad King John.Here is one of my favorite poems from this book.Knight in Armour Whenever I m a shining Knight, I buckle on my armour tight And then I look about for things, Like Rushings Out, and Rescuings, And Savings from the Dragon s Lair, And fighting all the Dragons there And sometimes when our fights begin, I think I ll let the Dragons win And then I think perhaps I won t, Because they re Dragons, and I don t. pg 55 Conclusion Littles will eat this stuff up.

    One is never too old for A A Milne.

    As 1920 s poetry collections for children go, this is fairly decent i kind of thought it was a winnie the pooh book but. whatever.Technically Pooh is in this but its barely a cameo I m not a fan of poetry either, or i guess because this is for kids we may have to call it nursery rhyme Anyway its fine.

    So to make a short story long a friend of my mother s, his mother died may she rest in peace And those people already had a lot of books so all the books of the mother are brought to them and they want to dispose of them, so he calls my mom, asking if I m interested in books Me assuming everything was in Dutch, I was not much up to it, but he told me that there were all sorts of books So well why not, I came there expecting a few boxes with books, maximum up to 3 or so There were seven of them and his wife wasn t allowed to keep any So it was in the early morning that I spend through seven book boxes to find books I might like, I did like and that I did want to read and since everything would otherwise be gone, some books my friends might want Thank god I had help from my boyfriend since we didn t have much time, I manage to look through everything and come up with 86 books that I want, a few for my two reading friends and off I could go One of those books was this one I am not very familiar with names but as soon as A.A Milne jumped up I knew it There has once been a boyfriend of my mother whom collected books I only liked him because of that of course and he collected them, Winnie The Pooh stories I always watched movies when I was a kid So I was very and am very proud that I have one I expected a full story written about Winnie but I didn t get that, I got poems which was something else but it was lovely I didn t get all but I sure did love some of them I hope to get my hands on a few , maybe so I can buy them or maybe in the library Time will tell.
