Book ReviewI discovered this book when I was making a research for a paper about the Russian Cartoon version of Winnie the Pooh. If you are familiar with the history of the family, you know that later in his life Christopher Robin tried to live far from the shadow of his portrait in the books of his father. Nevertheless, this book truly express joyful times and contains two volumes: "When we were very young" that contains the world of Christopher Robin when he was three, and "Now we are six" which has more adventures of his childhood, when he passed from 4 to 6 years old. All the poems reflect the love of a caring father and how the little adventures of his boy inspired him to create very wonderful poems.  A new movie is coming that relates a little about their relationship, and if someone is interested in the point of view of Christopher Robin there is a book titled "The enchanted places". It is truly fascinating to explore the life of the author and his son and of course approach to these wonderful books that will take you back to the delightful age of childhood.
