" This is such a charming, sweet, funny, and timeless collection of stories about the adventures of characters in the hundred acre wood. My favorite characters are Pooh, Piglet, and Eeyore. I love Ernest Shepherd's illustrations. The bittersweet ending always makes me cry. It is a sad fact that we all have to grow up, but this book can remind us of the magical thinking our childhoods possessed. " said.

" "-Какво най-много обичаш да правиш на този свят, Пух?Това, което най-много обичам на този свят, е аз и Прасчо да дойдем да те видим и ти да ни кажеш: "Какво ще кажете за нещо малко?", и аз да кажа: "Не бих имал нищо против, а ти, Прасчо?", и вън да е ден за тананикане и птичките да пеят" Мечо Пух " said.

"The World of Pooh is a series of short stories about life in the Hundred Acre Wood.

Gavin read this to Alice and I thought that I'd read it myself since I am a general fan of Winnie the Pooh. I found myself falling asleep rather quickly as I was reading this, but I suspect it has more to do with the season I read this in than with the content of the book. In general the stories are sweet, gentle ones. I was interested that certain characters appear over time (if I recall, Tigger doesn't even come on the scene until the second book). I was surprised that Eeyore was much more ascerbic and mean than he is portrayed in Disney's version.
" said.

"I realized that my son had no idea who Winnie the Pooh was, though he’s had a Pooh Bear night light his whole life. Though I didn’t remember liking Pooh much, I decided that we needed to remedy the situation, and checked out The World of Winnie-the-Pooh from the library (the first two books together). Charlie and Eleanor both loved it. I loved it. My husband loved it (he came up at bedtime to hear the stories, too, if he could).

I don't know why I didn't like Pooh before. My best guess is that I never actually read the books as a kid (I know, I know), and was relying on either the Disney movie from the 1960s (still pretty good - we also got the DVD from the library), or the Disney cartoon series and specials (nah) my brother watched when he was little and I was a teenager to inform my opinions. In which case, I was too cool for Pooh Bear or any other little kid stuff. I had cool teenager things to do.

This is a particularly fun book to read out loud, especially if you try to do character voices.
" said.

"I recently saw the film "Goodbye, Christopher Robin," and it inspired me to finally sit down and read this gem of a book. Unlike my husband who had it read to him every night when he was little, I never had it read to me, nor read it to myself. I'm not sure why --- perhaps my age --- there was renewed interest into Winnie the Pooh when Disney got the rights, so maybe that had something to do with it. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, remembering, of course, that I'm not the demographic to be reading it ---- or am I? The book is so well done, dealing with chasing Woozles and Heffalumps, throwing parties for Eyeore, saving Baby Roo in the water, and finally honoring Pooh at a big party for helping his friends. All the while, the book is also introducing all the fine characters that live in 100-Acre Wood. I found myself re-reading several times because I wasn't paying as much attention as i should have been doing while reading, to catch the irony or humor that probably would only be caught by adults --- so Milne was way ahead of time in putting little precious moments in his kids' books for adults READING to the kids can enjoy as well! This truly is a gem, if you haven't gotten a chance to read it before. Thanks to that wonderful movie for inspiring me to do this activity!" said.

" "Poetry and Hums aren't things which you get, they're things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you" ---A.A. Milne. " said.

" 2017: Read to my younger daughters (age 7 & 5) - on reflection slightly too old for them I think, but fun to read together.2010 Reading: Read with oldest daughter (age 5) each night over the course of a few months. She loved it, and so did I actually! This sort of timeless children's book is rewarding for a grown up reader too. " said.

"I read Winnie-the-Pooh for the first time when I was 21 years old and thought it was one of the most funny, sweet and endearing books I have read thus far. I believe Winnie-the-Pooh to be a book that can be enjoyed by both adults and children for completely different reasons. As a 21 year old, I noticed the sometimes sarcastic but, in my opinion, hilarious tone of A.A. Milne's writing, something a child might not notice. I think it is written very cleverly and that Milne has created a beautiful fantasy world. " said.
