I’m a teacher and bought this book for my class in September to help with easing the children back into school and helping them if they’ve got worries. It was recommended to me. I’m very unimpressed with the book and won’t be sharing it at all. It gives examples of worries that are inappropriate for young children “she was worried that she was getting too fat” “she worried about wars and bombs” Essentially, the book gives a list of reasons why she shouldn’t share her problems with her parents/ siblings/ friends/ teacher. And in the end, this young child shares her problems with a stranger on a wall down the street. Completely the wrong message to be sending children in my opinion. The idea of problems looking small when they are out in the open is a sweet one, but the narrative is completely wrong. As a small, picky, aside, the old lady then throws the empty bag away into woodland at the end of the book. Which I also don’t think is an appropriate message to be sending.
This book is full of gorgeous original Winnie the Pooh illustrations but the text has been shortened and modified slightly to make it more readable for modern audiences which is great. I adored Winnie the Pooh stories as a child but the original books are very long and wordy and not easy to read to my 2 year old. This book retains all the charm of the old stories but is nicely compact and tells a lovely simple story of friendship and kindness and good old fashioned Christmas spirit.
It’s a much smaller, thinner book than I had anticipated, and nothing like the jolly postman (there are no physical letters to take out and read) - the title can be a little misleading in this way so don’t get caught out!
In times when it seems so much is like a caricature of the Monty Python news sketch of the “Minister without portfolio”, i.e. everything has to be explained in ever more simplistic pictures and videos, a return to the traditional high-quality of the BBC radio is a relief. Intended for my grandchildren, it allows them to concentrate their own imaginations as prompted by this great story.
It is a good example of story-telling at its best, both the original book and its re-telling by the BBC.
What's there to say about good ol' Winnie that hasn't already been said? It's a classic book that's perfect for children and adults. Winnie-the-pooh is poignant, beautiful and timeless. The story it weaves about the adventures of Pooh is one that everyone should experience at least once. All this is only made better by the lovely drawings that help weave the story as it forms in your imagination.
There is an innocence to Winnie-the-Pooh that is almost altogether lost in the modern day and harkens back to our collective childhoods where we dream of halcyon days and dream of adventures with our friends.
This is all bolstered by the fantastic quality of the book itself (i.e the paper quality). Seriously, just buy this already!
I'm sure I must have read Winnie-the-Pooh before as I remember all the characters and had a very strong memory of Pooh trying to trick the bees into thinking it was raining so he could steal their honey, but otherwise I couldn't remember any specific events. I don't know whose copy I ever read but I don't think it was mine, or I would still have it!
Anyway, I'm so glad I got this cheap on the Kindle as it was lovely to read again after many years. As I read, some of the stories were a little familiar so it did feel nicely nostalgic. The writing style is so adorable and it does have clever little jokes or references in for the adults too.
I’ve never read Winnie-the-Pooh or any of A.A Milne’s books before but I’m familiar with the characters from the screen. So even though I hadn’t read the book before I felt like Pooh, Tiger, Rabbit, Eyeore, Piglet, Christopher Robin and the Hundred Acre Wood were dear old friends. It was a pleasure to read. The illustrations are quite sparse but lovely and of a high standard. I get why this book and other books are so popular.
A timeless classic. A child and his toys brought to life in a collection of, humerous, gentle, endearing stories. It was read to me when I was a child and I have purchased this copy for a nephew. I wanted original illustrations, not the garish Disney cartoons. I have also revisited it as an adult and now I know why my uncle used to burst into fits of giggles when he was reading it to me! Everyone should own a copy. Good quality hardback which I like to think will still be fit to live on a bookshelf when the recipient is a young adult.
Who could not be delighted by this book. Just how many grownups, of any age, have actually read it for themselves? Having 'indulged', the next treat is the House at Pooh Corner. Adults deserve such soft literary moments.
