Filled with childhood honesty and simplicity, these were the tales Milne told his own child, Christopher Robin, inspired by the boys' stuffed toys and the animals that lived nearby. Do your kids a favor and start by reading the original stories, to them and with them, as they were originally written. As a set, its a wonderful keepsake to pass on to generations.
Please note I rate this edition as a 2, but the books themselves as a 5. Winnie-the-Pooh is every child's favorite.
The Pooh is, of course, classic.
What I will say about this particular edition is that it reproduces the original almost perfectly and so is, for the price, a huge bargain.
This is no re-telling or other messing up the original. It IS the original, with the pictures. If you want Winnie the way A. A. Milne saw it, this is your ticket.
While you can read these to young children, don't hesitate to read them to even 7-9 year olds. My younger children enjoy listening to them because they are about Pooh, but my older children love them because they are funny! Older children are able to pick up on humor that is lost on 4-5 year old children.
While Disney and others have popularized Winnie the Pooh, etc... and those books are nicely illustrated, the writing of A.A.Milne is so worth your while. These books are a good investment if you are interested in having good literature for your children.
A. A. Milne uses wonderful language, humor, suspense, making these books and their wisdom last into adulthood - we all have favorite quotes often used to fit specific situations. To this family, they represent the very best childhood literature.
