Now We Are Six Deluxe Edition
Now We Are Six Deluxe Edition | A.A. Milne
25 posts | 30 read | 1 to read
When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six complete the four-volume set of deluxe editions of the Milne and Shepard classic works. Like their companions, the Winnie-the-Pooh 80th Anniversary Edition and The House At Pooh Corner, these beautiful books feature full-color artwork on cream-colored stock. The imaginative charm that has made Pooh the worlds most famous bear pervades the pages of Milnes poetry, and Ernest H. Shepards witty and loving illustrations enhance these truly delightful gift editions.

“But now I am six, I‘m as clever as clever, so I think I‘ll be six now for ever and ever.”

I also love the connection to Winnie-the-Pooh. This is fun for all Pooh lovers!

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

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. 12mo
laurenbescoby 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. 12mo

“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

Whenever I think of #KingJohn I hear the King's Singer's setting of A. A. Milne's poem, King John's Christmas from Now We Are Six. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=U0uGDrYaLTU Here's one YouTube video of it.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 stars.
From the intro, but I thought it was the cutest thing. And an apt post script.

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.
