Just received a new Early Reader from the Winnie the Pooh series. I love Winnie the Pooh–but I still don’t understand the need to add monsters (even if they are not real) to the Hundred Acre Wood.
This new line of Classic Pooh just came in from Kids Preferred. They are super soft. I love the large and small Pooh. I can’t ever remember seeing swirly designs in the plush of a teddy bear–so that’s kind of novel. I’m not sure how kids are going to react..our interns (all in their teens) grew up on the Disney version of Pooh and his friends. None of them considered these versions “real”….so we’ll have to see how our testers respond. They sure are soft!
Today marks the release of the Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. While there is a fair amount of controversy about the book, Jim Dale brings all of his talent to the audio recording. He will be at Lincoln Center Barnes & Noble today at 5pm with a sampling of the recording. If you’re in the area, take your kids!
