For the Love of a Bear


This weekend, on  August 21, 1921, Winnie the Pooh will turn 90 years old. 

Winnie the Pooh once said, "If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you." Luckily, we will never have to live without Winnie the Pooh for he will live forever in the  pages of books (and  in our hearts).

The original tales and poems by A. A. Milne are charming, and will spark the imagination of young readers. I highly recommend that you give them a try.

 When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six are included in this  the complete collection of delightful verses and fanciful rhymes of A. A.

Inspired by the author's young son, Christopher Robin, and featuring, of course, his great friend Winnie-the-Pooh, Milne's poems are timeless celebrations of childhood. They offer readers a magical world where reality and imagination intertwine' a world perfectly rendered in Ernest H. Shepard's enchanting illustrations.
