I received the book 5-Minute Winnie the Pooh Stories (5-Minute Stories) to review. I am a fan of the 5-Minute Story books for kids, they are padded and on the large side with 12 stories each and always include nice artwork. In this case, some of the stories are adapted from other books (those stories/books are listed next to the contents), though none of the stories seem to be recent. I have not read any of them before.
All of the classic Pooh characters are here, from Winnie the Pooh to Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit and more. There is a cute story about a best-friend sleepover with Pooh and Piglet (although Piglet worries about a sound that he thinks might be a heffalump). And another story is about winter, called “Pooh Welcomes Winter”. In that story, all of the Pooh characters (including Owl, Tigger, Pooh, Piglet and Rabbit) are ready to welcome Winter, thinking that Winter is a “who” instead of a “what”. It takes until the end of the story where Christopher Robin finally breaks what winter is to them.
The stories are interesting, and should hold the interest of younger readers/listeners. Like other 5-Minute Stories, this book is a solid one, not a stocking stuffer size but one that would make a nice stand-alone gift. The age range tends to be 2-5 and the reading level is considered grades 1-3. But I enjoyed the stories too, so take that as a guideline.
I recommend 5-Minute Winnie the Pooh Stories (5-Minute Stories) for kids who love Winnie the Pooh or just Disney stories in general.
