The reader (Peter Dennis) is poor to the point of distraction. He makes Pooh sound as depressed as Eeyore and far from lovable. He makes snuffling/honking noises throughout Piglet's speech that is beyond annoying. I don't care if this reader has the real Christopher Robin's approval - I found him horrendous. That being said, the stories are worlds ahead of many early children's stories. The character each have developed personalities, the stories are detailed and entertaining, and the humor is...well...humorous. It seems many older children's books are simplistic and condescending to young children. ( )

Winnie-the-Pooh was exactly what I needed. I basically read it in one sitting and smiled the entire time. There are scenes from one's childhood that seem fixed in place. They are immoveable and grounded in such a way that it's as if they were always there. Many times you try to revisit them in your adulthood and discover that they were little more than cardboard sets and a man pulling strings. Christopher Robin and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood are a completely different ball of wax. In fact, I learned more about these beloved characters through this book. For instance, did you know that Winnie-the-Pooh had a different name? (I'd tell you what it was but that would be a spoiler. (-: ) Or that Tigger didn't show up until the second book in the series? I recommend that everyone read this book with their children (or nieces, cousins, etc.) because it's beautiful. The storylines are sweet, the illustrations are enchanting, and the way it makes you feel is indescribable. ( )

5 Stars for Nostalgia Read

One of my reading challenges this month was to read a book with a teddy bear on the cover or in the story. I knew instantly that, even though it's a children's book, I was going to reread Winnie the Pooh. What a wonderful, classic story about one of the most beloved characters in children's literature. It's one of the most magical books that entire generations can enjoy together. If your only introduction to Pooh is through the Disney version, please read this book to get a better view of the sweet world of this “Silly Old Bear”. He thinks he's a “bear of very little brain” but he always get the “hunny” in the end. He's a loyal and steadfast friend who is fond of food and poetry. His very best friend is Christopher Robin and he lives in the Hundred Acre Woods with his friends, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Tigger, Kanga and Roo.

The stories retain the beauty, simplicity and charm they have had for almost 100 years. The illustrations by E.H. Shepard are amazing. It was so much fun the revisit this book after so many years.

As if there was any doubt I wasn't going to love Winnie-The-Pooh? It was really nostalgic to read, but it went quick. I can't wait to read the other books in the series. I can understand why these stories are classics. 5 out of 5 stars. ( )

First words
Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin.
Quotations
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?” “What’s for breakfast,” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?” “I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said. (160)
So Kanga and Roo stayed in the Forest. And every Tuesday Roo spent the day with his great friend Rabbit, and every Tuesday Kanga spent the day with her great friend Pooh, teaching him to jump, and every Tuesday Piglet spent the day with his great friend Christopher Robin. So they were all happy again. (109)
[Piglet] is jealous because he thinks Pooh is having a Grand Introduction all to himself. Pooh is the favourite, of course, there’s no denying it, but Piglet comes in for a good many things which Pooh misses; because you can’t take Pooh to school without everybody knowing it, but Piglet is so small that he slips into a pocket, where it is very comfortable to feel him… and in this way he has got more education than Pooh, but Pooh doesn’t mind. Some have brains, and some haven’t, he says, and there it is. (ii-iii)
