"The whole world opened to me when I learned to read." More

Type of Reading: playtime reading, read aloud book
Recommended Age: read together: 1 to 4; read yourself: 6 to 9
Interest Level: 1 to 5
Age of Child: Started reading with child 18 months old.
Young Reader Reaction: Initially intimidated by the sound effects buttons. Took her almost six months to get beyond fear.
Adult Reader Reaction: Great story theme. It's nice to have sound effects.
Pros: It's a nice story, and the book is over-sized, which makes the pictures of Pooh and friends "large-as-life" for kids. Our little reader wants to help you press the sound effect buttons, but is afraid to do it herself.
Cons: The volume on the sound-effect buttons is far too loud for little ears. There are too many words on the page to engage a toddler long enough for you to tell the tale. The pictures are great, but don't give you enough to skip the words and make up your own
Borrow or Buy: Skip it. The sound buttons are fun, but too much for a young reader. Even for the toddler who's a HUGE Winnie-the-Pooh or Tigger fan, it is not a big hit.
