Winnie the Pooh is the first e-reading experience I had with iBooks/iPad. It is a free book that comes along with iBooks when you download it from the app store.
Whew! that was a lot of “I”s in just a couple of sentences, but then we all better get used to it, because I am definitely going to be reading more books using the iBooks app.
I don’t think that I can add anything more to the countless reviews of this wonderful children’s classic. It is sufficient to say that I love this story of a young english boy Christopher Robin and his imaginary friends – Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, the Hare, and other wonderful characters who live in the hundred acre wood.
I do think that some of the most delightful children’s fiction comes from a different era – Enid Blyton, A.A.Milne, Edith Nesbit, Beatrix Potter…they opened up such a wonderful world of imagination for me when I was a young girl. I don’t know if the children’s fiction of today is of the same calibre. Do you have any contemporary children’s novelists that you love? I would love some recommendations.
My experience reading Winnie the Pooh on the iPad was simply delightful. The illustrations, the fonts, the layout…everything was just perfect.
Here is a screenshot of how lovely the iBooks display is:
This definitely provides me with an incentive to purchase more such books 🙂
Btw, the Alice in Wonderland app on the iPad that I had blogged about here is just as awesome when I tried it out.
The more I use the iPad, the more thrilled I am with the purchase 🙂
