Publisher's Summary

Blackstone Audiobooks presents, from the unabridged collection A.A. Milne's Pooh Classics, the 44 poems and verses from When We Were Very Young 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.

For sheer delightfulness, the children's rhymes of A.A. Milne are in a class by themselves, with their charm, humor, and understanding, to say nothing of their irresistible rhythms.

Critic Reviews

"Peter's reading of A.A. Milne's verse and poetry is about you and me and that cognac-colored moment when a scent of memory sends us flying back through time to a place in youth where, for a perfect instant, nothing is wrong." (Los Angeles Times)

Great Memories

I read this book to my daughter from before she was born, when she was an infant and young child She still has the copy of this book as well as When We Were Six and used them when she had to do dramatic readings in her drama classes. They verses are fun and quirky and have wonderful lessons.

Charming

This is such a wonderful collection of poems. My children (7 and 3) listen to it on long car rides, and it always brings a smile. The narration is excellent.

Four year old's stamp of approval!

My four year old loved listening to these! She thought they were so silly and fun. It's not always easy to get kids her age engaged with audio books for very long, but this one was a winner! She listened to the whole thing in just two sittings.

No way to select a poem

This is badly produced. There is no contents. There is no way to select which poem you want to hear.

Oh the Memories

Peter Dennis was born to narrate Pooh. Every word comes to life and carries you far, far away. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Very relaxing.
