It is probably a bit sad to admit that I did not read any stories by about Winnie-the-Pooh until I was in my late 30's. By the time I was a child they were already animated, so I am still very familiar with the 100 Acre Woods and Christopher Robin. I knew the lore about how A.A. Milne wrote these stories for his son. Yet, I had never read any of the books.
Thankfully my quest to finish Amazon's 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime encouraged me to pick up this book, the second in the Winnie-the-Pooh series. There were benefits to starting with the second book. Most of the stories were new to me. I did not have preconceived pictures from seeing them on film - well as many at least. I will never be able to view Pooh, or Eeyore, or Piglet as anything other then their movie versions.
This is a collection of stories all of which take place in the imaginative 100 Acre Woods revolving around Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends. The stories are a journey of friendship and of growing up. They would be great to read to your younger children, but they are also perfect for your early reader to read as they transition from being a "big kid" to being a kid. If you are nostalgic for your own childhood then I highly recommend that you pick up this book and relive a bit of magic that can be found between a child and their bear.
