The Tao of Pooh

The Tao of Pooh - Benjamin Hoff, Ernest H. Shepard This is a precious, silly, funny little book. I have a really special fondness for Winnie the Pooh, having grown up with the books and the philosophy that Hoff connects with the Tao in this book. Is it an amazing, life-changing book? Probably not. But it's a fun read if you want to learn the basics of the Tao te Ching and re-connect with an old childhood classic.
