    1. This is a wonderful collection of stories that all children should read The quality of writing, style, and ideas can help educate children in appreciating fine literature and language We started reading this book at an early age of four and within several stories my son had fallen in love with the book He wants to re read it as often as he can This is a keeper for our family.


    2. I have very fond memories of sitting on the couch, freshly scrubbed and in my pjs, cuddled up to my mom while she read me wonderful stories of Uncle Wiggily s adventures.


    3. I read this hoping to find some good material here for my story times at work No luck It was written in 1921 and you can really tell how dated it is Uncle Wiggily is perfect and every little girl or boy he interacts with does exactly as he hopes they will do and every problem is quickly and easily solved Uncle Wiggily makes the generalization even states it outright that all girls are good and only some boys are bad But, of course, if you treat those boys nicely they will immediately change and [...]


    4. A great book of Uncle Wiggly stories My mother grew up on these, somehow I never heard of them, and then she gave us some Wiggly books for our kids They were a big hit Ended up having them on audio as well as in book form The kids just could not get enough of these gentle tales of a gentleman rabbit and the average problems in a world of talking animals.


    5. This is the first long novel I have ever read to my children I was afraid they would be bored with so few pictures and only black and white sketches to look at but I was pleasantly surprised They sat in absolute awe of the animal adventures They talk about Uncle Wigggily frequently We will definitely be reading many long books together in the future.


    6. As I read this book, I was reminded of the Thornton burgess animal stories books It has a very similar feel and is full of good moral stories and simple short stories kids can relate to this Such as losing a tooth or going sledding or having Thanksgiving But this authors style is a little bit silly and nonsensical at times to make sure the moral stories aren t too heavy My kids like that each story ends with the silly nonsensical paragraph that leads into the next story.Great for my six year ol [...]


    7. I loved this book Every night my dad reads me a bed time story well used to and this was my favorite One night i said to my dad, Dad maybe we should try reading the whole thing and he said yes so he did


    8. Found this at a use library book sale We loved it So fun and funny Caleb has asked for a second reading of it.


    9. We were reading a chapter a day, and every was loving itying it was so funny and such Then last week the two older boys ages 11 and 10 said they felt it was too baby and could we PLEASE stop reading it The younger two ages 7 and 5 won t hear of stopping the book so we are now having Uncle Wiggily Wednesday and will read one chapter each Wednesday.The stories are quaint, with a moral lesson They do start sounding the same after a bit so it s probably a good idea to spread them out some You can de [...]


    10. My son and I read this as a part of Sonlight s P4 5 curriculum This ended up being my son s favorite book that we read this school year As soon as we finished it, he asked for a new Uncle Wiggily book I m hoping I will be able to track one down to read over the summer with him I was pleasantly surprised with how much he enjoyed this since the stories are very antiquated, slow for a preschooler , and there is only one illustration per chapter Some of the language is very outdated, but my son didn [...]


    11. I read this out loud to my 7 year old and he LOVED it I found myself editing at times as I read There s some pretty hefty sexism from time to time like assuming all girls will be good to animals but some boys are bad boys who are mean to animals I remember enjoying this a lot as a kid and it was fun to see him enjoy it so much.The only other issue is that it s not really great for reading out loud There are lots of REALLY long sentences There were plenty of times where I had to read it something [...]


    12. I started to read this book to the boys at the start of the summer They have an Uncle Wiggly counting game that they enjoyed playing for a couple of years, and when I realized there was a whole large book filled with stories about Uncle Wiggly, I had to get it for them They laughed so much while I read this to them It is about the adventures of a rabbit gentleman who tries to help animals and children This was nearly 300 pages a larger book too , but was so great to read chapter by chapter Some [...]


    13. A wonderful adventure book Chapters are a little bit longer, so it is a good test to see if your children are ready to listen longer Uncle Wiggily is always willing to lend a helping hand My daughter remembered it from when we read it two years ago and would often join in to listen I wasn t sure my son really liked this book, but when we read the last chapter he said Let s read it again.


    14. I remember my mother reading this to my brother and I as children It s full of entertaining little tales of Uncle Wiggily, his rheumatism cane, and all the little forest folk I m definitely planning on getting a copy to read to my children.




    15. My parents used to read Uncle Wiggily to me every night and this wonderful children s series is still one of my favorites.


    16. My mom read me this book when I was growing up Recently, I received it as a gift and have read a few of the stories It is a wonderful children s book but definitely from a different era.





    17. Funny stories about a whimsical bunny This was a favorite this year We read it as part of Sonlight p4 5 , but the whole family loved to listen in



    18. Great book to read to your kids Short self contained chapters that each tell a little adventure with a little character forming thrown in.


    19. I thought this book was SO BORING It was an absolute chore to read it aloud to my kids But when I finished it, they told me it was their favorite
