I absolutely love this book and this translation! John Senior put Milne's Winnie the Pooh books on the Good Books List, and I can certainly see why. The thought processes of Winnie the Pooh are great for getting your toddler or younger child to think about cause and effect and also to express these thoughts in words, in this case German words. It contains the original illustrations by E.H. Shepard, which you are sure to remember from your own childhood, and the two books: Pu der Baer (Winnie the Pooh) and Pu baut ein Haus (Pooh Builds a House).
