About the Author
CARL SANDBURG (1878–1967) was twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize, first in 1940 for his biography of Abraham Lincoln and again in 1951 for Complete Poems. Before becoming known as a poet, he worked as a milkman, an ice harvester, a dishwasher, a salesman, a fireman, and a journalist. Among his classics are the Rootabaga Stories, which he wrote for his young daughters at the beginning of his long and distinguished literary career.

Read this book to your children. Look up Sandberg reading this on youtube, and try to mimic his accent. Read this book to your children and make it part of their heritage. Read this book to your children and years later they will thank you for it. They may suffer when they speak in class of "Wednesday evening between the twilight and the gloaming" and nobody realizes that they are talking about a pigeon, or when they comment to a friend that they will never "sit with the sitters or knit with the knitters". Read this book to your children. They will grow up to be better people because you did.
