We have been listening to this book since Isabella was six months old and she still loves "Winnie Pooh."
According to the audiobook's introduction, Christopher Robin has said that Peter Dennis' reading is the best at bringing Pooh Bear to life. I do not remember the exact quote, but after listening to it it is easy to believe.
This is not merely a reading but an amazing performance. All of the different characters are performed with different voices and the noises of a country house in the background contribute to the effect that you are Christopher Robin listening to a story in your house near the Hundred Acre Wood.
Avid reader/listener of romance, action, thrillers, and spy novels.
Imaginative, classic, fun
Frog and Toad because it's got that old storytime feel to it. Love the classics.
My sons love this book, which is why I bought it. They like the narrator because he sounds like daddy.
Not completely. I missed the illustrations.This sweet book would be enhanced with a multimedia approach, and time to pause and enjoy. But the stories are timeless and Peter Dennis' reading delightful.
Yes, it is an excellent dramatic reading, except for the annoying snort when Piglet talks. Unfortunately, being so familiar with the stories since reading them to my own children decades ago, the dramatization does not match my own imagined voices. My personal preference would be to have a reading more in line with how a parent or grandparent would read to a child, certainly with expression and some animation, but more low key, but this is not how audio books are done.
How can one choose a best part of Winnie the Pooh. It is a wonderful, marvelous story.
Okay, I have to confess. I, grandmother that I am, listen to Winnie the Pooh at night when I cannot sleep. As soon as my grandson is old enough I will both read it to him and we will listen to the audio book together.
These stories about Winnie-the-Pooh are so delightful in their innocence and wisdom, and Peter Dennis so perfectly captures the tone of each character, that I frequently turn this audio book on when I can't sleep and am asleep again by the time my iPod goes into sleep mode.
No, only more convenient at times.
It explores the different characters well and in a patient & humorous way. Also,..each chapter ended and started with a similar tune to mark the separation between stories - critical in this type of audio book.
Conveys emotion and author intent well.
No but it was entertaining and dramatic.
My son thoroughly enjoyed these stories and we wish there were more similar available
Great to listen to and simple to understand so the kids get the most out of the story, true to the ethos of Winnie the Pooh
Sci Fi Fan
Great for riding in the car with kids. My four year old nephew adores listening to this - he knows all the stories but gets really delighted hearing them narrated on longer car trips. If you have to drive with kids, grab this right away!!
Tell us about yourself!
My nephew loved listening to this on a long car ride recently. Usually he's WIGGLY, but he stayed calm and enjoyed the story!
I love Pooh, but hadn't read the stories in such a long time. It was delightful to have them read again to me. They're so sweet! :)
