Reviewed for Second Grade, 2009

Return to the Hundred Acre Wood

Fans of the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh books will be delighted at this new addition, which takes readers back to the Hundred Acre Wood for the further adventures of Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eeyore and the rest of the old gang. Told in a series of episodic chapters perfect for the second grade reader, this book revives the deft simplicity of A.A. Milne's original prose, while adding new stories and even a new character. Great for readers beginning to hit their stride! (Dutton Juvenile, $19.99)
