Christopher Robin by Elizabeth Rudnick & Disney Book Group


My daughter and I have finally finished this phenomenal story of Christopher Robin and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. This summer, we went to the showing of Christopher Robin, opening night! 


I loved it, so I was ecstatic to see the book the following day at Barnes & Noble.. knowing we were in for a treat since the book is always better. And it was!!!!

Each night that my daughter and I read through a chapter, we laughed, we cried, we attempted to make our best donkey voice, and related this book to shows of Winnie the Pooh that we have seen before. The last thing was mostly me, I have watched all of the movies hundreds of times. My oldest son, Venti Espresso, he was born in 2000 when all of the baby stuff was Pooh Bear, I swear I should have named him Christopher Robin. This would have been perfect, since his favorite stuffed animal was Pooh (he still has it).
So this story of Christopher Robin is just amazing. Christopher Robin is all grown up and has forgotten about his special times at the Hundred Acre Woods, until one day Pooh meets him in London. It seems as though Pooh has lost all of his friends and believes that his good old friend Christopher Robin can help him out. He was right, Christopher is able to assist him in his "expotition", while at the Hundred Acre Woods which is depressingly
 different due to the lack of sunshine and thick fog, Pooh begins to understand that his friend is also in need of some assistance. With the little help of all of his friends and some new ones, he sets out on another adventure.
I will admit, there were times, I held back tears as I read. Whether it was the storyline or me reliving my childhood during moments of Christopher Robin reliving his, it was an emotional "expotition". I encourage you, to go on it.. and bring a few friends along, whether it be your family or your classroom. This would be a great read aloud, or even a fun readers theater! 

I read this book as a part of my #BookaDay Reading Challenge, inspired by Donalyn Miller. My goal is to read at least one children's literature book every weekday and share my thoughts here on my blog. Please feel free to subscribe or connect with me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time ...
