This book is essential for any childs bookshelf.,

This review is from: When We Were Very Young (Winnie the Pooh) (Hardcover)
This book was my favourite as a child and is now the favourite of my two children. It is essential each child has their own copy as it continues to be a treasured possession when you leave home! As a first book of poetry it is both poignant and funny. It appeals to both children and adults alike and is suitable from a very early age. The concluding poem 'Vespers' is essential bedtime reading. In short any child brought up without this poetry is being shortchanged indeed. Its follow on book 'Now we are Six' is equally as brilliant and a perfect present for a sixth birthday. The main problem is the impatience you may feel waiting for your child to reach this age!
