Happy Winnie the Pooh Day!

January 18, 2012

Allan Alexander Milne was born on January 18th, 1882.

Milne wrote many plays, screenplays, poems, and some novels but he is best known for the stories he wrote for his son, Christopher Robin. Winnie the Pooh, and his friends in the hundred acre wood have been delighting children with their adventures since 1926 when the first Winnie the Pooh book was published. Remember when Pooh got stuck in Rabbits house or the time when Tigger first came to the forest, or when Eeyore lost his tail?  Pooh taught us many things in life, like how to play Pooh Sticks, or that “when you go after honey with a balloon, the great thing is to not let the bees know you’re coming,”or the best advice of all,  “you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Celebrate A.A. Milne’s birthday today by reading some stories about Pooh, Christopher Robin, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, and Roo. You can read them by yourself, but these stories are always better when shared with someone.
