It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the ‘bear of very little brain’ round these parts. Winnie the Pooh and his friends feature pretty heavily in Bubs’ day to day life; whether it’s watching Piglet’s Big Movie, reading about the Trouble With Bees or snuggling up to Eeyore at bedtime.
Bubs was very kindly bought today’s book (or, to be more accurate, books) for Christmas by her Uncle G. It has held the top spot on our bedtime reading list ever since.
The Winnie the Pooh Collection consists of four paperback books; two containing the original short stories and two of poetry. They all have E.H. Shepard’s beautiful illustrations decorating the pages and really are a delight to look at and to read.
We’ve been reading Bubs one of the short stories at bedtime every evening. On most nights she’s asleep by the third page and I don’t know about Hubs but I certainly read on regardless. I love the stories so much. I suppose that’s the mark of a good children’s book isn’t it, when us grown-ups don’t mind reading them for the umpteenth time.
