Winnie the Pooh Snuggle Time by A. A. Milne
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

June 2015 Book of the Month You’re never too young for Winnie the Pooh! Appreciation of the syntax can come later, but Pooh and his friends exude a warmth and content that even the very youngest children will understand. Soft and tactile, this is a lovely book for babies, and Pooh looks just as he does in the books. A perfect first book at bedtime! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Winnie the Pooh Snuggle Time by A. A. Milne

Winnie-the-Pooh Snuggle Time is a wonderful, cosy bedtime treat for sleepy babies. This delightful cloth book is made from soft, luxurious fabrics, includes two crinkle pages and is edged with ribbon trim.

The smart presentation box makes it a perfect gift for a new baby or a mum-to-be. The book is based on characters from A.A. Milne's celebrated stories of Winnie-the-Pooh, the bear of little brain and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood, which were brought to life by E.H. Shepard's charming illustrations.

Simple text accompanies Andy Grey's charming illustrations of Pooh and his friends.

About the Author

A. A. Milne

A.A. Milne (1882-1956) grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House in Kilburn, for young boys - but never intended to be a children's writer. Pooh he saw as a pleasant sideline to his main career as a playwright and regular scribe for the satirical literary magazine, Punch. Writing was very much the dominant feature of A.A. (Alan Alexander)'s life. He joined the staff of Punch in 1906, and became Assistant Editor. In the course of two decades he fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920 (although he described the baby as being more his wife's work than his own!). Observations of little Christopher led Milne to produce a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926 the seminal Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). After that, in spite of enthusiastic demand, Milne declined to write any more children's stories as he felt that, with his son growing up, they would now only be copies based on a memory. In one way, Christopher Robin turned out to be more famous than his father, though he became uncomfortable with his fame as he got older, preferring to avoid the literary limelight and run a bookshop in Dartmouth. Nevertheless, he published three volumes of his reminiscences before his death in 1996.
