Winnie-the-Pooh Edit
by researchparent Combined Rating: 5.0
My 3.5 Year Old's First Read-Aloud Chapter Book
Pros Cons
  • Simple storylines
  • Each chapter it's own mini-story
  • Occasional pictures help child with comprehension
  • Funny for grown-ups
  • First chapter in a confusing tense (I changed it on the fly)
  • Some elements go over child's head
I spent a long time trying to find something I could read aloud to my 3 year old that was more than a picture book, but still sustained his interest. I was actually shocked that Winnie-the-Pooh worked perfectly. Of course I knew who Winnie-the-Pooh was, but I'd never read the books by A.A. Milne. They are wonderful and hilarious. The author has a dry humor that flies completely over the toddler's head, but it doesn't matter, because the stories are simple enough that even a three year old can follow them. Some of the passages were so funny (to me) that I'd read them to my husband after my toddler fell asleep. I had no idea. And the best part was that my son would listen to an entire chapter which was a mini story all by itself each night and still want more the next night.
