Originally published in 1924 for his three-year old son, When We Were Very Young is a collection of poems written by A. A. Milne in celebration of the joys of childhood, and this refashioned illustrated edition brings his words, and characters, to life. From an ode to dancing in the rain ("Happiness") to a nod to active imaginations ("The Third Chair"), each sweet composition is told both in word and picture. Meet illustrator Rosemary Wells's darling cast of animal and child characters, and say hello again to A. A. Milne's very own Christopher Robin. Little ones and adults alike will find this to be a story time favorite.
