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.
