A. A. Milne was born in 1882 in London. He was a playwright and journalist as well as a poet and storyteller. His classic children's books were inspired by his son, Christopher Robin. Milne died in 1956. Born in Budapest in 1910, Alexander Lenardwas a graduate of the famous Theresianum in Vienna.

At the time of his death in 1972 he was fluent in twelve languages. Winnie Ille Pu was the product of over seven years of work, beginning with a German translation of the famous classic in 1951, on which A.A. Milne personally congratulated him."

Reviews - What do customers think about My First Winnie-the-Pooh (Pooh, Dutton Children's)?
cute but lacking Jan 30, 2008
I do like that it is a board book and therefore child safe for my 2 1/2 year old, she loves to look at the illustrations, as they are on every page and very well done. BUT as previously stated by others, this book is essentially exerts from all the other Pooh books. These exerts are cute but there are some that end rather abruptly leaving one hanging. Even though my daughter knows all the Pooh stories by heart she was rather bemused on a few of the pages when they ended without resolution.
I LOVE IT!!!!!!! May 3, 2006
My thirty year old grandson got me this book and I LOVED IT!!!!! My wife read it to me out loud and I enjoyed it very much. It did take us a year of steady reading but it was worth it. To all those 87 year olds out there, get this book!!!
Unsuitable for Toddlers Apr 13, 2006
I purchased both My First Winnie-The-Poor and Bedtime with Winnie-The-Poor for my 2 year old granddaughter who is beginning to look at Pooh stuffed animals,etc. These are board books, designed for the very young, but these two books are simply scattered exerpts from the full length book or "Now We Are Six." Some can stand alone, but others simply start with a paragraph from Pooh and end a few paragraphs later with no "ending" understandable for a 2-3 year old. A child fully able to appreciate the exerpts would be better off having the REAL Pooh read to him or her by an adult.
my first winnie collection book Aug 5, 2005
I am starting a collection of the much loved children's book's for my grandson, & was happy to add this pooh book
A favorite of my two year old daughter Sep 9, 2003
What a pleasure to have well written poetry that appeals to my 2 year old daughter! This book is a current favorite of hers, and we read it to her every night. The classic poems by AA Milne are as appealing to me as they are to her, and the illustrations by Ernest H Shepard make me look forward to my daughter growing up with all of AA Milne's books.
One disappointment - nowhere in the book does it point out (for the parent reading them over and over) that the poems contained in the book are often parts of larger poems written by A.A. Milne. You'll need to find a different book if you want the full poems of "Us Two", "Vespers", and "Nursery Chairs" for example.
Otherwise, a great book to add to your child's collection!
