Little Kid Reaction

I picked this book so we would have something to read to her at night for a week or so. She really enjoyed all the messes the characters got into. She laughed and wanted to know how each story was going to end. I am so happy she enjoyed the stories and it was a fun way to end the night. She went to bed happy after each reading!

Parent Reaction

This is a good read-one-chapter-a-night book. I really enjoyed it! The stories were great and easy to understand. It was fun to read about the Pooh gang in new adventures. The stories stayed true to the characters. The only negative I can come up with is that the paintings (drawings in the book) did not look exactly like the characters in the original. I am being pretty picky though as they were pretty good!
