Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eileen Hanning
In this book in the "My Very First Winnie the Pooh" series, Christopher Robin teaches Pooh and Piglet about strangers. As Christopher Robin is about to venture out of the hundred-acre wood to visit his grandmother, he shares his "stay safe rules" with Pooh and Piglet. Rule number one is "Don't talk to strangers." Christopher Robin does a good job of defining "stranger" and explaining why a child shouldn't talk to one before he goes on his way. Later, at Pooh's house, Pooh and Piglet hear a strange noise outside and wonder if a stranger is making it. Of course it is only Gopher-certainly no nefarious characters would enter the hundred-acre wood! Christopher Robin returns with cookies to congratulate Pooh on his stranger savvy. While the picture book does a good job of defining the concept of strangers and demonstrating how one handles a potential stranger at the door, it stops short of showing how a kid should handle meeting a real stranger. The gopher-at-the-door lesson would have been more effective if the readers actually got to see Christopher Robin's list of safety rules at the beginning of the story instead of at the end. Even with these structural shortcomings, Don't Talk to Strangers Pooh! does an adequate job of introducing the concept of strangers without being scary.
