Fisher has been asking me to read him Winnie-The-Pooh for quite a while now. I have never read Winnie-The-Pooh and know very little about it, but he has been looking at our big, blue, beautiful treasury and has decided he must know all about this little bear.

We started it last week and while I still don’t quite understand the fascination with this story, I will keep reading it to him because he is loving it. It has sat on our shelf for years and years and this is the first time one of our children have been interested in it. What about you? Are you a Pooh fan? If so, why?

  1. OH! I adore Winnie the Pooh! What is so hard to understand about it? A little boy has an entire imaginative forest wherein he goes on adventures with and invents stories about his stuffed animals and toys. Pooh is curious and hilarious, and who doesn’t love a good game of Poohsticks wherever there is a river running under a bridge?

      Maybe as we get further in to it I will understand the magic of it. I know absolutely nothing about Winnie-the-Pooh. I have never watched it or read it, so it is taking some time for me to figure it out.

    Our family adores the real Winnie the Pooh books! We have the audio books of them, and we think they are hilarious! I can’t remember which stories are our favorites, but the ones about Eyore are so funny. Maybe it is the charming accent of the reader on our audio cds, but we’ve definitely fallen in love those those stories. Stick with it, I’m sure you will too!

      It’s not that I don’t like it, I just don’t understand it yet…I could use a cute I’ll reader to listen to!

  3. We love Winnie the Pooh, at least as long as they are the originals. The later disney-fied ones are awful, but then, aren’t almost all disney-fied books?

    I like the interaction of the characters. Pooh says he is of very little brain, but things always work out O.K. for him. Each animal has his own personality, but loves interacting with the others. Piglet is fearful, rabbit anxious and type A, Owl uses big words, but can’t spell, tigger is just full of life and adventure, and Kanga, what a good mama!

    We fell in love with Winnie-the-Pooh when I checked out what I thought was an audio cd from the library. Turns out it is done with several actors, and is wonderful! With Dame Judy Dench playing Kanga, and as one of the narrators, and Steven Fry as Pooh, it is just so much fun. Another big plus for us is the music, all Pooh’s songs and hums are put to tune. Very well done over all.

      Oooh, thank you for the audio recommendation! We will look for it!
