There is a How the Poem Came To Be or circumstance-the background of each poem. Is just a few poems with story and artwork 35 pages -so I am savoring each--no more than one a day. SO I READ THE FIRST--AND THE ODDEST THING HAPPENED AS I WAS FALLING ASLEEP, OR SLEEPING--I remembered a frustrating incident from the past--that when I told the story at work, everyone thought it was so funny, and remembering the incident after it was all over was a funny memory for me too. SUDDENLY, I was putting it to rhyme! Kind of like a Cat in the Hat, probably because of the domestic trouble it caused me at the time, but there you have it. And instead of just fading away, it stayed with me. I may or may not put the effort into getting it down on paper -- it will probably flow and be so much fun. IT SEEMS THAT MR. STEWART HAS SHOWN US HOW TO BRING OUT OUR INNER POET! And yes, the suggestion that we read the poem in Jimmmy Stewart's delivery is the best way-because it is is informal way that brought my memory to poetry. God bless him for this Gift.

I was sadly disappointed when this "book" arrived. I read the entire thing cover to cover in FIVE MINUTES. I wish they had included all his poems he read on the tonight show or at the very least, many more of his poems in general. This hardcover booklet is "cute" and "quaint" but that's all it is, a booklet.
I've always loved James "Jimmy" Stewart and always will but this falls very far short of being called a book!! Save your money, even if it is only a couple bucks, it's not worth the price.

I'm not a poetry fan, and this isn't a book I'll pick up and read on a regular basis. But I do love Jimmy Stewart, and if you're a fan of his who saw him recite the poem about his dog Beau on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, you'll understand why this is a book that you must have in your collection.

If you love Jimmy Stewart you will love this short but sweet book of poems that he wrote. When you read it you can practically hear Jimmy Stewart reading it to you. Too bad that there weren't more poems.

There's a reason why Jimmy Stewart became a famous actor and not a famous poet. In fact, this book shows that reason in striking and graphic detail. But good poets are difficult to find nowadays anyway. Good story-telling is also hard to find nowadays. And yet Jimmy Stewart does some wonderful stroytelling in his little book of poetry. If you can read these poems and hear his voice in your head at the same time, then they're a lot easier to read. Many a college student today will read assigned poetry by Byron, Frost, Shakespeare, or Tennyson and come away with nothing. But even the most unpoetic reader will come away from this book with a smile on his or her face.

Although it appears to be out of print, as of my typing this, Amazon currently has over 300 used copies available - at least 10 of which are selling for under $6.00. I think I paid less than a dollar for mine. And with a mere 32 pages anyway consisting of only about five or six poems, there's no reason to pay much more than that.

So, the book is available. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I had the book of the Poems and then found out about the cassette but there was non available here in Australia.
I found several listed on Amazon and I contacted one of the sellers who was very helpful.
He described the cassette as very good and when I received the cassette it was excellent and plays very well.
It is a wonderful thing to have Jimmy Stewart reading his poems, I also had a Dog called BO which is short for Bocephus (Hank Williams Jr.) and I miss my Bo so very much,
He was a Red Cattle Dog and was my best mate and I still have tears for him, Jim's dog was called Beau, so the names sound the same making the poem very special for me.
This cassette is special to me so it was wonderful to get one in such good condition. and I thank the seller for being so helpful.
All of the items that I have purchased on Amazon have been very good and the sellers helpful.
I do recommend Amazon to friends

I saw a rerun of the Johnny Carson Tonight Show where Jimmy read his poem "A Dog Named Beau" and had to have it. Only a few poems, I wish there were more but the one poem would have been good enough.
The book only had 3 poems; I'm guessing that is because he only wrote 3. They were okay; interesting. Always loved Jimmy Steward and his movies.
