Format: Hardcover
This is a precious collection of stories, in chapter form detailing adventures of Uncle Wiggily, the bunny rabbit gentleman, who understands people talk, and dedicates his life to helping other animals and children. When I started reading this book to my six year old, it took a couple of stories for him to become involved in the book. After that, he loved the stories, and begged for a new one each night. These stories are set in such an innocent time, that is requires adjustment from most children initially to get involved, compared to the books and television shows that are currently available. The book provides imaginative stories that promote virtuous behavior. While each story addresses a different plot, each involves some of the same characters. I would highly recommend this book as a permanent addition to your children's library. Each of our subsequent children have loved it!

I grew up with my Dad reading Uncle Wiggily stories to me and my two sisters almost every night. This is a memory that I treasure forever. The stories in this book are very heartwarming and teach life lessons. This was my favorite book growing up and I distinctly remember begging for just one more story before I had to go to bed! I highly recommend this as a bedtime story book!

Uncle Wiggily is a bunny rabbit gentleman and philanthropist. With the help of Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy, he helps the animal children, as well as real boys and girls to learn life lessons. This is a charming look at life before televisions and computers, where children can learn vocabulary from the past, and life lessons that are enduring.

This distinguished bunny gentleman and his affection for children, his vital imagination and his enthusiasm for living are utterly captivating to kids. At least they were for mine. Now that my little 5-year-old girl and I have exhausted the stories in print, she begs me make up new ones every Saturday morning. Her favorites so far: 'Uncle Wiggly and the Statue That Came Alive,' and 'Uncle Wiggly and the Pirate Raccoons' (neither of which is available in print, since, as I indicated, I made them up). Suffice to say that the Wiggly sensibility is unremittingly positive. Its prime tenets: Generosity and self-sacrifice; solving problems through innovative thinking; underscoring the dignity of each individual; believing only the *best* about everyone (including the Harum Scarum Bear), and going through the day with a mischievous smile and a bounce in one's step. By the way, the bunny gentleman's full name -- which you will also not find in any of the books -- is 'Hieronymo Falstaff Wiggleston Longears.' And, as you might gather, he's become a beloved member of our family.

I happened upon a CD of Uncle Wiggily stories and sent it to my 3 year old Grandson who loves books. My Daughter says he listens to it everyday and loves that he can imagine what the characters look like. I have to listen carefully when I talk to him on the phone because he wants to tell me all about Uncle Wiggily and his adventures.

I am so glad to find the book now, which I will give him for Easter so he can see what the characters actually look like.

I also grew up with Uncle Wiggily and working in the medical field used to call my co-workers Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy.

Thanks for not forgetting about the time tested warm, sweet books of old. I am thrilled to introduce a favorite from my past.

Of the hundreds of childrens books that we have read, the Uncle Wiggily stories rank at or near the top of the list. The stories are excellent in every way. The writing and vocabulary usage is tremendous. The stories are appealing to both children and adults and every story has an excellent message. I have seen tremendous growth from our oldest child as a result of these terrific stories. This particular book if filled with approximately 30 of these wonderful tales.

Simple old fashioned stories with little lessons in each chapter/tale..perfect for before bedtime. Both 3 1/2 yr. old and 8 1/2 yr. old sons enjoy the book that Santa brought. Their Grandpa was totally amazed to see it and turns out it was HIS Favorite book as a boy and he clearly was thrilled to see it again and find out his grandchildren were also enjoying it. Book was bought to accompany game which I remembered from childhood but never heard the books that it was founded upon. It may not be the most poetic prose or amazing literature but it is simple, old-fashioned with nice morals to stimulate further conversations---and it is from an era without the electronic media influence so it reflects that in a wonderful way. Its amazing that a last minute afterthought gift should become one of the treasured holiday presents. We should all think more about "Retro" books, movies, and toys--they became classics and part of the American culture for a reason. Retro can actually become a reward for the present.
