And love it still!! It is timeless. Wondetful to read aloud to children of all ages.
AA Milne is best known for his character of Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends in the Hundred Acre Forest. This book of poetry by Milne, with drawings from his longtime collaborator Ernest Shephard, is a compilation of poems written from a child's perspective that only sometimes incorporates well-known Pooh characters. Many of the poems in this compilation brought a smile to my face as I enjoyed Milne's ability to capture the thoughts, creativity, and priorities of a child almost perfectly. The style of the poems doesn't follow any set poetic rule or logic, although most do use a rhyming pattern. Each poem is accompanied by distinct pen and ink drawings including many of Pooh and Christopher Robin. The poems themselves are full of English words, terms, and scenarios, and therefore more than a little bit of cultural interpretation is needed. This in no way detracts from the poems themselves, however, as each one does a marvelous job at creating imagery and a small snapshot of endearing children and their ways of looking at the world. My copy of this book was given to me years ago for a birthday by my best friend, and I truly do count it as one of my favorite books for sheer sentimental reasons alone. The greatness of the poems is simply an added bonus!
