Perfect for kids!

I listened to this when I was older than the young kids this book is geared towards and I STILL enjoyed it. I think the narrator did a wonderful job with the characters (though sometimes a little over-the-top with the Piglet character, but that's just my personal opinion). He lends the perfect amount of distinction and animation to each character and keeps you drawn into the charming story. I would recommend it to children and adults alike.

Author

Author Bio: A. A. Milne

Alan Alexander Milne (1882–1956) was the son of a Scottish schoolmaster. Milne won a scholarship to Westminster School and later read mathematics at Cambridge. His real interest was in lighthearted writing; he edited the undergraduate magazine Granta and at twenty-four he became assistant editor of Punch. After serving as a signals officer in World War I he won additional acclaim as a playwright. His great success, however, came as a writer of children’s literature after publishing a series of verses about his young son Christopher Robin (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six). Following the acclaim received for the Winnie-the-Pooh books, Milne published several novels as well as an autobiography, It’s Too Late Now (1939).
