This sweet collection of poems by A.A. Milne captures the magic and imagination of childhood. Some feature Christopher Robin, Pooh, and the gang, but many do not. All are delightful! The whimsical illustrations by Ernest H. Shepherd enhance the fun. I loved these poems as a child, and still do today. ⬇️

julieclair Thanks, @TheBookHippie for choosing this as the March selection for #Children‘sClassicRead2022. I thoroughly enjoyed reacquainting myself with this little gem! #Pantone2022 #Daffodil @Clwojick 2mo

I just adored this little book of playful children‘s poems! Singing them aloud made me laugh (and made my family wonder about me!) It also had a hilarious introduction and some of the cleverest rhymes I‘ve ever read. When I need a smile, I know I can always rely on A.A. Milne and Pooh! 😊
Thx @TheBookHippie and #ChildrensClassicRead2022 for another winner! 🙌🏻

PurpleyPumpkin I really enjoyed this one too! It was lots of fun. 🥰 3mo

A lovely book of poetry featuring Christopher Robin and sometimes, Pooh appears as well. We meet Christopher‘s friends both human and otherwise. Included are the original illustrations by Ernest H. Shepherd which are delightful! As @TheBookHippie has recommended, it is a wonderful way to start the day with a cup of coffee or a sip of tea! #childrensclassicread2022 Thank you for another choice that brings a peaceful feeling to my soul.

TheBookHippie It was wonderful 🐻💙 3mo

Sweet book, some amusing poems. Wished there‘s more of Pooh in it. My favourites are the Christopher-and-Pooh poems.

Why can't a mom go back to when her own children were six and want to cuddle with you and share a child's book of poetry? 😭😭 I WANT A GRANDBABY!!!!!! Like Pooh, I was expecting this book to be different, but loved every stanza. #ChildrensClassicsChallenge @TheBookHippie

I found this an enjoyable tidbit. Some poems were better than others, of course, but they were refreshing and fun overall. Thanks to @TheBookHippie for picking this for #ChildrensClassicRead2022 - especially nice as I read the two prose Winnie-the-Pooh books last summer, and my mom sent me the two poetry books (both lovely 1950s-ish editions). Glad to have a push to read at least one of them!

My #greencover for #MagnificentMarch. I read these as a child and feel in love. Several years ago my mother-in-law found the 4 book set at a garage sale and bought them for me. They are some of my most cherished books. 💚

A very cute book filled with some of the best children‘s poems. Easy to read, some are fun and really relatable to children.

For a long time, this has been my favourite poem. I have no idea why. The only thing I can think is that for my 14th birthday (yes you read that right) I got this lovely hardcover edition of all four Pooh books, and this was on the very last page. One day my dog pulled it off the shelf and it fell to the floor (nearly hitting him) and fell open to the very last page and there it was.

More books I‘d forgotten about. Love the copy of ‘Now we are Six‘ - it‘s from 1963.

I love this - ‘Readers should take the greatest care of the books and report to the Local Librarian any defect found in them‘ - oops!

The other two are late ‘70s so still quite old, but in better condition.

Chrissyreadit I loved Now We Are Six and When I Was Very Young. Such sweet books. 3y
laurieluna I have that copy of Winnie-the-Pooh. Mine's in slightly worse condition than yours as it was well loved when I was little after being passed to me from several cousins! Love the illustrations in it. 3y

“Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?” ~A.A. Milne

This has long been my approach to writing...spending days, months, even years thinking about characters and stories, without committing the ideas to paper. I‘m better now, trying to write every day, but the struggle is real.

My A.A. Milne collection sparks my creativity, motivation, and childhood curiosity without fail

What are the books that you turn to most for inspiration?

Now We are Six is a collection of poems written by A.A Milne. I didn‘t know about these poems until a friend introduced me to them. I enjoy how simple they are and how children and adults would both enjoy reading them. This is an audiobook of the poems that children will enjoy. https://youtu.be/5iOlObXddhE #UCFWalterslit

Yesterday was #InternationalLiteracyDay but the Internet gods were not cooperative. This was a favorite of my mom's when she was six. I'm pretty sure she drove her siblings nuts with her regular poetry spouting (she memorized the poem about bring 6). I gave a copy to a friend's daughter for her 6th birthday and guess who was up early this morning reading? That's right, the stubborn, spunky kid who does things her way. She'll be a reader yet.
