Before Disney Studios turned Winnie-the-Pooh into a characature of himself, these stories, illustrated with warmth and love by E. H. Shepard, filled children’s and parent’s heart with a glowing delight. Fortunately, the originals are still in print and you can discover them, too.
These are the books I grew up on and still love. Whenever I reflect on any of them, I break into a smile and (I’m told) am inclined to begin humming or singing. This is what I hope your children will find, also – a lifetime of delight. Whether they are captivated by such dancing poetry as “James James Morrison Morrison; Weatherby George Dupree; Took good care of his mother; Though he was only three.” or whether they giggle their way through Pooh and Piglet’s attempts at capturing a Heffalump, it is my belief that such joy will last them a lifetime. “Sing Ho! for the life of a bear!” An essential classic.
