Now we are six

Now We are Six is a charming book of poetry by A.A. Milne. It is a fun book of poetry in its own right - however, it is the perfect gift for a six-year-old.  My daughter is six today and this is the book she received, because it contains this poem:

When I was One,
I had just begun.

When I was Two,
I was nearly new.

When I was Three,
I was hardly Me.

When I was Four,
I was not much more.

When I was Five,
I was just alive.

But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

I love this poem.  I also found a fun printable and idea for rolling quarters that you could give with the book for a fun gift at  It is the perfect six-year-old gift.  Here is to hoping that my clever as clever daughter will stay six forever . . . .
