A.A. Milne's writing reaches the hearts of readers of all ages. His poems weave together the worlds of reality and enchanting make-believe. And they are paired perfectly with Ernest H. Shepard's whimsical illustrations.

This is the first volume of rhymes written especially for children by A.A. Milne. Although many of the rhymes refer to times past--not many of today's children have a nurse to look after them--the humour and simplicity of the rhymes make them as popular now as when they were first written. Accompanied by E.H. Shepard's original illustrations in colour, this is a handy volume to have on standby for reading to young children. --Philippa Reece --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    These 1920s poems are a mixture. Some have dated, some are rather whimsical, but the majority make wonderful soporific bedtime reading for children! Telling children to listen without looking is very neglected nowadays. Poetry is easier for a very tired parent to read than prose, and listening to poetry without looking at the pictures is the best way for children to get sleepy. Market Square, the Little Black Hen and Sit Thomas Tom are my favourites, and of course The King's Breakfast is legendary!

    I'm sure I must have read Winnie-the-Pooh before as I remember all the characters and had a very strong memory of Pooh trying to trick the bees into thinking it was raining so he could steal their honey, but otherwise I couldn't remember any specific events. I don't know whose copy I ever read but I don't think it was mine, or I would still have it!Anyway, I'm so glad I got this cheap on the Kindle as it was lovely to read again after many years. As I read, some of the stories were a little familiar so it did feel nicely nostalgic. The writing style is so adorable and it does have clever little jokes or references in for the adults too.And really, who doesn't love Winnie the Pooh?

    I just glanced at this book of poetry and could not put it down, it took me back to my childhood,absolutely wonderful

  • By Lord John on 6 November 2015

    Loved this book as a child. I think one meets all these characters in real-life. The busy Rabbit, the gloomy Eyore, Wol who is so wise, but has trouble with words like Wednesdays.and all the others. When tired and feeling a bit gloomy, it is still a delightful read. No tech gadgets or fancy things, just a simple world. Having it on the Kindle is a joy, especially with the proper drawings, not the terrible Disney efforts.

  • By Ann Lindsay on 15 September 2014

    A timeless book beautifully presented. The pages are a good quality paper with a ribbon page marker. My Grandson and I have loved this as bedtime reading since he was very little and now he is six what better way to celebrate his birthday than his very own copy to keep; for his own children hopefully one day. Delivery was prompt and the book was well protected. couldn't be more pleased.

  • By Emma Kingsley on 30 July 2015

    Absolute timeless classic for young and old alike. Reveals an Age of Innocence sadly becoming lost in today's world; when children and adults delighted in the simplest of things and created amazing worlds through their own imagination. Winnie the Pooh never fails to delight!

  • By Graham M. Jones on 23 June 2017

    Unbelievably wonderful, a treat for children of all ages. How could anyone give it less than five stars, its influenced children's books from the day it was first published,

    My children grew up with Christopher Robin and I love the magic and rythmical use of language in this book. My grandchildren are into more contemporary books but I recite a poem from WWWVY and they love that - so I am gradually introducing more poems from the book. They particularly like the rythm of "James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George Dupree, took great care of his mother, although he was only three". I think using poems like this helps their appreciation of language and music as well.
