The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff, 158 pages, read by Melody, on 02/15/2012

While not a book for a serious study of Taoism, The Tao of Pooh is a very sweet and gentle book using Winnie the Pooh as the perfect teacher of Tao.  Comparing the patient and calm Pooh to the ever busy Rabbit, the ever glum Eeyore, or the ever pontificating Owl, Hoff gives a illuminating overview of the basic tenets of Taoism.  The book is most successful at capturing the spirit of Tao instead of a being a scholarly treatise of religion.
