Grade all levels?Penguin's production amplifies the fact that A.A. Milne has created some of the most memorable poetry and prose in children's literature. Charles Kuralt narrates all the tapes. When We Were Very Young resounds with Kuralt's lively reading of the nonsensical and onomatopoetic rhymes that fill the heads of toddlers. Opposite these poems, the narrator reads, with loving care, the verses about the real and imaginary playmates that warm youngsters' hearts. Now We Are Six reflects the growing complexity of a child's world. The narrator's voice is soft and vulnerable when reading of the innocent, inquisitive thoughts that preoccupy children, yet Kuralt speaks with a touch of exasperation when reading the poems depicting the young's struggle to understand the adult world. He does equally as well with Milne's stories. All the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood are introduced and their humorous escapades chronicled in Winnie-the-Pooh. While portraying the characters, Kuralt's child-like tone reflects their goodness, innocence, and wee intellect. The House at Pooh Corner continues the adventures of Pooh and introduces the bouncing, pouncing, lovable Tigger. Besides the delight children will experience when listening to the light-hearted, captivating stories, young listeners will also identify with the universal hopes, fears, and wishes of the characters. Kuralt's deep, learned-sounding voice gives the narration a fatherly, comforting feel. Libraries will want to acquire these high quality productions.?Mark P. Tierney, William B.

I'm giving only two stars because it was misleading and I am wasting time calling customer service, writing this review, wrapping the items back up, and then dropping them off to be sent. But they were worth the price and do look nice.
We looked for The House At Pooh Corner this year at Christmas time, and were disappointed when we couldn't find it. I bought the Peter Dennis version of the second book instead, but we don't enjoy that one as much (but that's another review) so I'm looking for the BBC Audiobooks version of Pooh Corner again.
the last poem in the book which I memorized long ago. I would never have believed that this could ever be
possible, but am grateful to everyone who helped to make it happen. Thank you.
I love it.
