    Winnie-the-Pooh, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Win-knee-the-Pooh: the tip of the lip taking a trip of three steps down the palate to return at four to kiss : Pooh. He was Pooh, plain Pooh, in the morning, standing eighteen inches in one sock. He was that scruffy old bear at school. He was Mr Winnie Pooh on the dotted line. But in my arms he was always Bear.

    In which the animals meet a Hostile Reviewer, and Pooh invents a New BreakfastOne morning, Pooh and Piglet were walking through the Hundred Acre Wood, when they spied a strange Creature lying on the ground. As they got closer, they could see that it looked a bit like a very large Boy. But what was most remarkable was that someone had tied it down with hundreds of tiny ropes. It could hardly move a finger, and there was even something tied over its mouth."Mmf!" said the creature in a loud but rat [...]

    “Some people care too much. I think it's called love.”Since Winnie-the-Pooh is my favourite Disney movie, I decided to read book it's based on. Turns out it is one of my favourite books.It is so absolutely sweet and filled with smart humor. What I like most about Winnie-the-Pooh is this melancholic feeling you get while reading. I just really really love it so much. I will forever read this to my future children (or dogs. Depends.)Find more of my books on Instagram

    Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne was my favorite book series as a child. Later, when my own kids sat listening to the adventures of Christopher Robin, Pooh Bear, Piglet, and Eeyore, and the gang, it was a little bit of a shock to discover this series, with its charming stories, are not just for kids.A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference I enjoyed sharing these stories with my own children, loving the chance - or excuse- to read them all over again, struck by [...]

    I got four matching hardback books today:When We Were Very YoungNow We Are SixWinnie-the-Pooh andThe House at Pooh Corner.I was going to put some ribbon around them and sell them as a set, but I got lost in reading The King's Breakfast (and loving Shepard's illustrations) aloud. I don't really want to sell the book now. I want to have kiddies come into the shop and on the pretext of perhaps making a sale from the parents reading the poems aloud. Most of the parents won't be impressed though, the [...]

    The Winnie the Pooh books are great because everyone has some sort of problem. Pooh is painfully naïve, Piglet is neurotic, Owl is a narcissist, Eeyore has major depression, Tigger is hyperactive, Rabbit is a sociopath, and Kanga needs to spend an afternoon with The Feminine Mystique. It's good for kids to learn that pretty much anyone you meet will have some sort of major problem.

    Book ReviewCan you believe Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne is almost 100 years old? I was shocked when I found out I thought it was from the 1950s or 1960s nonetheless, it's an amazing memory. So many fun characters, great childhood moment and even some adult ones come from these books and the subsequent mass market media that came from them. It always had me wondering what exactly is a "pooh," as in bear Christopher Robin's made-up name, so it seems, came from a childhood bear and the name of a s [...]

    Truly a beautiful book! 😊

    Celebrity Death Match versus Heart of Darkness.Dear Christopher Robin,Your father and I miss you but we feel that it would be best if you spent the remainder of the summer at camp, as previously agreed. You quit the boy scouts, band and your newspaper route to spend more time with those things. Really, my son, you are much too told to play with stuffed animals. To think, all my friends in the bridge meetings have all-star athlete sons and honor roll daughters to brag about. I have Christopher Ro [...]

    So beautifully and so simply written (deceptively so) by A.A. Milne and exquisitely illustrated by E.H. Shepard (initially black/white line drawings and later colour washed by Shepard himself). These are the stories of a boy and his bear, his world and all the wonderful characters that inhabit that world – 100 Acre Wood, his childhood and ultimately the passing of that childhood. What could have been (especially considering the era in which they were written) a particularly twee, sickly sweet [...]

    Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma: which reading list to follow it up with? Variety is the spice of life, so I’ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously. This book falls into my BEDTIME STORIES list.I have a little boy and love reading to him, so this reading list will cover the classic (and new) children’s stories we’re enjoying together.My baby son is six months old and as part of his bedtime routine we're reading him storie [...]

    Whenever I think of Winnie-the-Pooh, I think of an incredibly sweet melancholy. Like, A.A Milne is not allowed to make me feel these feels in the form of a children's story book!"If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.""How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."“Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”“You can't [...]

    Pooh gets shot for godsake! I don't remember that in the version that was read to me as a child! What I recall were the sweet, pastoral tales of human-like animals living semi-silly existences in their quaint village-esque neighborhood in the woods. I liked Pooh, his muddled world view and convoluted logic, and Piglet's utter meekness had its charm, however Tigger was mah boy! He was my favorite character in the book and coincidentally my favorite ornament on my family's christmas tree. Reading [...]

    It's tough to read something this perfect and pure without feeling a bit like Milton's Satan, dismayed by just how far from true innocence and grace I've fallen.

    Oh, bother! I’ve started this Review and now I don’t know how to continue. I had a Very Good Idea for one and then it sort of just Flew Away. (“What’s a Revue? asked Piglet, "can they really fly?” “Well, they can,” said Bear, “it Depends. Sometimes they just Plod, if you know what I mean. You have to say something of Very Great Importance, so that it will be Liked.” “Pooh," said Piglet helpfully, "if you wrote it I would like it anyway.”) But maybe there isn’t anything ne [...]

    I was not expecting this to become a new favorite! It has a similar style to Peter Pan and it's SO FREAKING FUNNY! I loved this so much and am SO EXCITED to continue with the series!

    Celebrity deathmatch review in which Winnie the Pooh wins.I know some here think I am unnecessarily wordy, so let me get straight to the point. Hamlet sucks.[Editor's note to these recently discovered papers. Tolstoy tries really REALLY hard to leave it at that, but he can't. And thus Tolstoy continues]As I wrote some time ago now:None of Shakespeare’s characters shows, in such a striking fashion, the playwright’s - I don’t want to say inability—complete disregard for proper characteriza [...]

    This is the first book written by A.A. Milne for his son Christopher Robin. I found all the stories whimsical and adorable. This book contains 10 short stories that are loosely connected. Especially the last 3 stories where Christopher Robin and Pooh refer back to them. I read this book outloud to my children and they loved it. I might have to get the sequels. My favorite story is the first one, called 'In Which-We Are Introduced to Winnie-the-Pool and Some Bees, and the Stories Begin. I've seen [...]

    Silly old bear! We listened to the audio during a family trip. For me, it was nostalgic, gentle, old-timey (a made up word that seems quite appropriate), and sweet. My children, both (I thought) on the older side to enjoy this in this day and age, absolutely adored it.

    Upon seeing my five-star rating of Winnie-the-Pooh via my Facebook feed, my sister made the following comment: "The originals were depressing. I prefer Disney's cuddly version." I made the following response, which I think sums up my feelings about this wonderful classic children's book:One day, Pooh and Piglet were walking through the Hundred Acre Wood when they came upon a Facebook Comment. "The originals were depressing," it read. "I prefer Disney's cuddly version.""Th-th-that's a v-v-very b- [...]

    Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBC's Big Read Poll of 2003.Winnie-the-Pooh is such an English Treasure, it seems impossible that I had never read it before, not in my childhood or in my adulthood. However, being English means that I already know all about Pooh Bear, his friends and that most treasured English-childhood past-time of Pooh Sticks.It was so charming and written so well, but I found it really didn't go anywhere. I wish I had read it as a child be [...]

    Actual rating: 4.5 starsThis book was so lovely. So, so sosososo wonderful.I used to watch the Swedish versions of Winne-the-Pooh when I was younger, but it was not until now I decided to read the book. It is of course very enjoyable for children but I love how I could, as a teenager (or hopefully soon-to-be-adult), enjoy it to a very high extent. I was very enthralled by A.A. Milne's way of telling this story and I thought it to be very funny, but at times also very serious and thought provokin [...]

    3 Stars It was nice to finally read these oringal adventures of Christopher Robin, Winnie-the-Pooh and all of their friends. The story was lovely and surprisingly quite whimsical. I will say though that even though I grew up watching various animated versions of Winnie-the-Pooh, I never truly realised how daft Pooh Bear was. I guess that’s the charm of childhood interpretation.

    И ако някой пак ми каже, че това е детска книжка, вече ще се изсмея колко мъдрост и колко сила има в нея само "Колкото повече Пух го търсеше, толкова повече Прасчо го нямаше" Култ! Ще се препрочита отново и отново
