Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr all levelsPenguin's production amplifies the fact that A.A. Milne has created some of the most memorable poetry and prose in children's literature. Charles Kuralt narrates all the tapes. When We Were Very Young resounds with Kuralt's lively reading of the nonsensical and onomatopoetic rhymes that fill the heads of toddlers. Opposite these poems, the narrator reads, with loving care, the verses about the real and imaginary playmates that warm youngsters' hearts. Now We Are Six reflects the growing complexity of a child's world. The narrator's voice is soft and vulnerable when reading of the innocent, inquisitive thoughts that preoccupy children, yet Kuralt speaks with a touch of exasperation when reading the poems depicting the young's struggle to understand the adult world. He does equally as well with Milne's stories. All the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood are introduced and their humorous escapades chronicled in Winnie-the-Pooh. While portraying the characters, Kuralt's child-like tone reflects their goodness, innocence, and wee intellect. The House at Pooh Corner continues the adventures of Pooh and introduces the bouncing, pouncing, lovable Tigger. Besides the delight children will experience when listening to the light-hearted, captivating stories, young listeners will also identify with the universal hopes, fears, and wishes of the characters. Kuralt's deep, learned-sounding voice gives the narration a fatherly, comforting feel. Libraries will want to acquire these high quality productions.Mark P. Tierney, William B.

    A literary legacy

    This book was my first introduction to Pooh, Christopher Robin and the Hundred Acre Wood. It was read to me as a child, and, because of the title, I considered it a challenge to be able to learn to read it when I turned six. The language is a bit difficult for an early reader, but within two years of learning to read, I was able to read most of it.

    My Dad was big on passing on traditions, and I suppose I inherited that from him. I gave this as a gift to a grandniece who turned 6 in December, in the hopes that that tradition can carry on through another generation, and the love of reading will grow, even if Piglet doesn't.

    A true classic!

    I am a teacher, and my wife and I are a doting aunt and uncle. This book and its timeless characters are a must have for any children's collection. This is a book which can be passed on through the family for years to come. Buy more than one copy!
