This DVD is OK, at least my 2 1/2 yr old loves it. But I wasn't as impressed with it. The whole concept is OK, but it leaves out Kanga and Roo and just has something missing. I am not sure what. I am just glad I got it off of DVD swap instead of paying for it.
A Great Show For All Ages!

"My daughter is 14 months old, and if any of you have a child at that age you understand how hard it is to hold their attention for more than two minutes. Well, the Book of Pooh does it for my daughter. We faithfully watch The Book of Pooh every day on Playhouse Disney (their morning lineup on the Disney channel), and she absolutely loves it. She loves the songs, and the characters, even though they are puppets they look so life like,(Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Pigglet, Owl, & Kessie the blue bird) and it's wonderful how they put those characters in a computer generated background. The colors are bright and eye-catching, and best of all I even I like this show. (If I can't stand to watch it then why make my daughter watch it????) I often find myself humming the closing song all the time! The Book of Pooh has good stories that teach children the right things, in a subtle way! I definitely recommend the Book of Pooh for all ages, it will definitely get your attention!"
A Nice Kids DVD

"I sat down with my daughter Hannah (2 1/2) and checked out the new Disney DVD The Book of Pooh created by Mitchell Kriegman. Mitchell also is the creator of Bear in The Big Blue House, a favorite around our house. Hannah enjoyed The Book of Pooh, which in the end is vastly more important than my enjoyment of it. The DVD runs 70 mins, and Hannah sat and watched it from beginning to end (a mark of a good kid's DVD). The effect that they use on The Book of Pooh, where they marry puppets and computer animated backgrounds, is really cool; I found it much more aesthetic and approachable than the computer-only animation shows out there (like Rollie Pollie Olie). Honestly, I enjoy watching Bear in The Big Blue House more with Hannah, but The Book of Pooh was lightyears beyond the annoying Dragon Tales or insufferable Rugrats and I really like how at its heart The Book of Pooh is about teaching kids to love reading and storytelling.

A Great Movie For Pooh Fans

"I was a little apprehensive when I purchased this DVD since my four-year daughter had only seen the animated version of Pooh. She loves the Blustery Day, The Tigger Movie, and the Honey Pot. Well when she saw this movie it almost immediately became here favorite Pooh movie. One of her first comments was look daddy my stuffed Pooh and Tigger are moving on TV. That pretty much sums up how the characters look, they are best described as animated stuffed animals. My daughter was instantly able to relate to them and eagerly watched the rest of the movie. The movie is made up of a few short stories dealing which each character. Afterwards I asked her why she liked the movie and she said that the characters in this movie look real compared to the animated ones. She did not use those exact words but that is pretty much what she meant to say about it. The video transfer is very well done and the Dolby 5.1 audio is a good mix. If you have kids that love Pooh and the gang I would strongly suggest this movie."
THIS MOVIE IS WONDERFUL!

"I just purchased THE BOOK OF POOH for my 6-year old son and he loves it. The puppet renditions are a really refreshing look on the old characters. These stories play like a series of shows onto themselves, but the wonderful moral - if you want to call it that - of this movie is READING. Winnie The Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Kessie, Owl, and even Eeyore are gathered together in Christopher Robin's room for an afternoon of ... READING. My son watches this movie from start to finish and then brings me a stack of his books for me to read to him. How wonderful. This movie is not just good because of what is seen on the TV screen, but is also good for the reading it promotes afterwards. Obviously, a two year old may be a bit young to benefit from the theme, but school age children and kindergartener's will be delighted. My 1-year old daughter also likes the movie, most likely because of the puppet renditions themselves.Pooh's story takes him on an adventure to the top of a hill, chasing a butterfly around and around, down the hill the way he came and back into his friends, whom he believes to be strangers who look like his friends on the other side of the hill. Piglets story has Piglet learning how to be a Tigger. Kessie's story has her wanting Owl to teach her everything he knows, while Owl actually teaches her that a little knowledge goes a long way. Owl also teaches Kessie that a lot of knowledge can be obtained from reading books. Rabbit's story has Rabbit teaching Tigger how to garden and Tigger teaching Rabbit something about being friends. Tigger's story has Tigger staying up all night, not wanting to miss anything, while his friends show him that there is nothing to miss at night except sleep. Eeyore's story tells of the elements of friendship and surprizes when it comes to Eeyore's Tail-aversary.A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL MOVIE FOR CHILDREN BEGINNING SCHOOL!"
