Amazon Review

This is A.A. Milne's second volume of verse about Christopher Robin and his friends. From short simple rhymes like "Solitude" to the longer poems, such as "King John's Christmas", there is a poem to suit any storytelling session. With E.H. Shepard's original illustrations in colour, this is an attractive and entertaining book for adults to share with young children. --Philippa Reece --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

A.A. Milne A.A. Milne is quite simply one of the most famous children’s authors of all time. He created Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo based on the real nursery toys played with by his son, Christopher Robin. And those characters not only became the stars of his classic children’s books, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and his poetry for children, they have also been adapted for film, TV and the stage. Through his writings for Punch magazine, A.A. Milne met E.H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne’s classics, earning him the name “the man who drew Pooh”.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple lovely 7 Jan 2006
Format:Paperback
I have just brought Milne's exquisite book for my daughter's sixth birthday as my father did for me and his father for him and she has already fallen in love with King John, the Good and Bad Bears and Shepherd's ever delightful illustrations and enjoys reading the classic poems to her array of bedtime toys as much as hearing them herself. These are not just cutes rhymes for those too young to have learnt discernment, Milne is a genius when it comes to choice of topic - as appealing to children now as it was four generations ago - and of using the essential 3R's of any classic for young children: repetition, rhythm and rhyme.
That other essential element required to male a child's book "classic" - that adults must enjoy reading it themselves - is also present; it was lovely to hear again the old favourites and to see the pleasure I felt at six reflected in the face of my own offspring. This book is a must for any family's bookshelf, as is its 'prequel' "When We Were Very Young". Make sure you but the hardback though, by the time my two younger brothers had passed six years, my own paperback had disintegrated with overuse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Memories for Your Children 26 Sep 2003
Format:Hardcover
I am now 51 years old and still remember many of these wonderful children's poems, despite not having read these book now for almost 20 years.
If you want your children to have the sort of memories they will cherish and the sort of children's poems that they will learn by heart and repeat over to their children and their grandchildren, then this book and its sister volume "When We Were Very Young" are a must.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic collection of children's poetry. 22 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I first received this book when I turned 6. I bought it again for my daughter's 6th birthday this year. The poetry is timeless and talks about the simple concerns of the young. I believe it is the best introduction to poetry for young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely old fashioned book, a perfect gift 19 Feb 2010
Format:Hardcover
I wanted a good quality hard backed copy of Now We are Six for a reading at a family wedding. This edition didn't disappoint. The poems themselves are timeless, perfect for reading aloud. The book has a lovely, old fashioned feel with Ernest Shepard's illustrations on nice weighty pages. It even has a ribbon page marker - a nice touch. This book will withstand many years of enjoyable reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Feel-Good Book for adults and Kids alike 30 July 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I love this book (and "When we were very Young") and so do my children. My two-year-old recites some of the poems with me and loves the sounds of the words (especially the mouse with the "woffelly nose"!) and on our latest trip to the zoo my four-year-old insisted she saw a "Wallaboo"! You may pick them up because Winnie-the-Pooh is featured and find them to be unputdownable because of the many other characters. These books are a must on the bookshelves of anyone who enjoys childrens poetry and are almost sure to give any child a lasting love of words!

I'm surprised how heavy this edition it - good quality paper, and beautifully coloured illustrations (NOT Disney-fied thank heavens). Good addition to a child's book shelf
