I picked up Pooh’s Library in the spring and decided it would be our summer read-aloud. This box set contains four hardcover books: the two original Pooh novels, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and Milne’s two poetry collections, Now We Are Six and When We Were Very Young, which features the very first appearance of Pooh.
It is the first set of chapter books that we have read as a family. So far the kids are loving it! They are 8, 7, and 4. I don’t remember reading these as a child so it’s a first for me too!
We read the first book, Winnie the Pooh, pretty quickly and now finishing up on The House at Pooh Corner. Each novel has 10 chapters.
I also found an illustrated version (in color) on Thriftbooks called The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh that the kids enjoy. Since we typically do a read-aloud during lunchtime or “poetry tea time”, I often play the audio version so I can eat or cleanup. My oldest loves to follow along and turn the pages for everyone. This audible uses great voices for the characters!
I just discovered this curriculum guide for Winnie the Pooh that looks great too!
As I was browsing around looking for Pooh books, I came across all the Pooh cook books! Have you seen these?!?!?
They are miniature cookbooks with quick and easy recipes. The things we’ve made so far have turned out great! We have been mixing up some sweet treats to enjoy during our story time. (The stuffed pooh bear pictured was my first born’s as a baby! Sniff Sniff.)
My son really loves looking through The Winnie the Pooh Cookie Book. We first made Tigger striped shortbread to celebrate Tigger joining Pooh for breakfast. Because Tiggers don’t like honey!
Next we made strawberry jam from the bags of frozen strawberries we had picked in the spring. My daughter really wanted to make mini strawbery shortcakes like her nana made for her.
So we found a jam recipe in Winnie the Pooh’s Tea Time Cookbook!
The BEST part about summertime is….. the BERRIES!
We next baked our berries into a yummy blueberry muffin recipe from the same book!
Starting to get a rumbly in my tumbly!
We’ve definitely used the Teatime Cookbook the most!
My all time favorite….. Banana Bread!
The Winnie the Pooh Picnic Cookbook is also just as sweet. It gives you different menus for different occasions. I actually combined Chicken Salad recipes from both the picnic and tea time cook books to create one I thought the family would enjoy.
I just received The Winnie the Pooh Cookbook in the mail from Thriftbooks! We cant wait to try it out. This larger cookbook includes quotes from the stories along with each recipe. Adorable! I think all of these cookbooks would make sweet gifts for children.
We plan to cut out Pooh Bear cookies to celebrate the movie opening!
Any one else excited to go see Christopher Robin!
