As 1920's poetry collections for children go, this is fairly decent... i kind of thought it was a winnie-the-pooh book but.. whatever.
Technically Pooh is in this but its barely a cameo. I'm not a fan of poetry either, or i guess because this is for kids we may have to call it nursery rhyme? Anyway its.... fine. ( )

poetry- narrative

Throughout this book of poems there are several pictures of a well-known toy bear, Winnie the Pooh. There is also mention of a bear who’s name is only sometimes Pooh, and of a Pooh who is not always a bear. And all of it looks at the world through the eyes of a small, active child normally Christopher Robin, a child between the ages of three and six whose mind is full of questions and games and make-believe.

I love the book because of the stories it shares. I don't know anyone who dislikes Winnie the Pooh. These poems have rhymes and rhythm that make the words flow, and fun to read. I think students would enjoy this book.

New copies of old favourites bought for my grandchildren. They have not shown as much interest as I would have expected. ( )

You don't get much better than A.A. Milne when it comes to children's books, and E.H. Shepard's illustrations are the perfect accompaniment. The verse in here still pops into my head, many many years after it was first read to me.

To Anne Darlington, now she is seven and because she is so speshal.
First words
Introduction: When you are reciting poetry, which is a thing we never do, you find sometimes, just as you are beginning, that Uncle John is still telling Aunt Rose that if he can't find his spectacles he won't be able to hear properly, and does she know where they are; and by the time everybody has stopped looking for them, you are at the last verse, and in another minute they will be saying, "Thank-you, thank-you," without really knowing what it was all about.
I have a house where I go
When there's too many people...
