When We Were Very Young & Now We Are Six: Volumes Three and Four
Blackstone Audio presents, from the unabridged collection A.A. Milne's Pooh Classics, the forty-four poems from When We Were Very Young and the thirty-five poems of Now We Are Six, performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these delightful verses authorized by A.A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin.
The first of A.A. Milne's four world-famous books for children, When We Were Very Young introduced Christopher Robin to innumerable friends and has probably been read more widely than any other book of verse for children published in our time. Now We Are Six followed, becoming a modern classic in its own right.
For sheer delightfulness, the children's rhymes of A.A. Milne are in a class by themselves with their charm, humor, understanding, and irresistible rhythms.
