These enduring poems by American master poet Carl Sandburg are perfect for a young audience, and now they have been newly illustrated with bright, colorful double-page artwork. The poems and illustrations work together, following a group of children through a day of enjoying and participating in Sandburg's poetry, observing nature, solving riddles and playing. Young readers will respond to the pastoral themes.

Sandburg lived the last twenty-two years of his life on a farm called Connemara in North Carolina, with his three daughters, Margaret, Janet, and Helga, and his wife, Paula Steichen, who raised champion goats. Sandburg described Connemara as "240 acres and a million acres of sky" and would often take walks in the surrounding woods. The birds, animals, and natural world that surrounded him at the farm resonate throughout these poems.

A prior knowledge and love of poetry are not required to appreciate the wit and insight of Sandburg's work - though a love of poetry may well result!
