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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Phillip | 2/16/2014

    " These time tested and enchanting poems revolve around the world of a very young Christopher Robin as he meditates on the nature of, among other things, chairs and stairs and squares and prayers. They also brush up against some of the adventures of Edward Bear (aka Winnie the Pooh) Then there are those poems that take pause to consider the world around said boy and bear, sometimes waxing whimsical and other times moving towards the meditative. This collection provides a fine mix of verse to graze lightly upon or, as I was prompted, commit to memory. "

    " This book and Now We are Six are my very favorite books of poems from my childhood, and I think my kids would agree for their childhoods as well. I just had to buy myself new copies :) "

    " Very cute collection of poems. I definitely like the Pooh stories much better, but these poems were fun and short. I could see them being excellent to read to a small child before bed or to help teach a child to read. "
