From Daybreak to Good Night free pdf 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! Poems: Daybreak Fog Bluebird, What Do You Feed On? Milk-White Moon, Put the Cows to Sleep Spring Try Being a Goat White Wings Bug Spots Sleep Face Good Night Three Riddles: If You Ask Your Mother There Was a Zebra There Are 10 Apples We have also included two of Sandburg's favorite poems: Bee! I'm expecting you! by Emily Dickinson The Horse Named Bill, Lyrics by Red Lewis

About Carl Sandburg

Author and poet Carl Sandburg was born in 1878. He worked many jobs before becoming a writer: delivering milk, laying bricks, threshing wheat, and shining shoes. After marrying in 1908, he moved to Illinois and took up journalism as a reporter for the "Chicago Daily News." "Rootabaga Stories" (1922) was his first book for children. During his career Sandburg won two Pulitzer Prizes: in 1940 for "Abraham Lincoln: The War Years" and in 1951 for his "Complete Poems." Sandburg died at his home in North Carolina in 1967. Lynn Smith-Ary has worked as an artist and animation filmmaker for over thirty years. Her films have won many awards, including a Genie for "Pearl's Diner" and first prizes in Columbus, Ohio, and Bombay for "Sandburg's Arithmetic." This film, based on the poem "Arithmetic" by Carl Sandburg, reflects Lynn's long-standing admiration for this great poet's writing. Lynn resides in Montreal.
