Julian Tuwim (1894 - 1953) was a famous Polish poet who is highly recognised in Poland, almost all Polish children and adults know his famous poems, such as ‘Lokomotywa’, ‘Ptasie radio’ and many more. He was a major figure in Polish literature, admired for his contribution to children's literature.
This wonderful bilingual edition of poems by Julian Tuwim was translated into English by Marek Kazmierski, so that the reader from outside Poland, not formerly familiar with the subtlety of these verses, could be wrapped around their uniqueness. This translation fully reflects the rhythm, context and uniqueness of these poems.
Poems for Children will lead you into the world of Miracles and Wonders. A world that almost every Polish reader knows from his childhood - a land full of words of an outstanding poet. The words that resonate with us and affect our adulthood.
