The story of Winnie
Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear - Lindsay Mattick,Sophie Blackall

Isn't it sad when a book comes out and people just seem to be completely unaware of 1. its existence and 2. its level of amazingness? Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear by Lindsay Mattick is one of those hidden gems. I've mentioned before that if a book doesn't circulate it's offered to another branch in the hope that it might do better in a different location. That's how this book landed in my hands (it was also on my TRL).  As the title suggests, this is the story of the bear named Winnie that spawned the Winnie-the-Pooh series by A.A. Milne. It's the heartwarming tale of a man who befriended a baby bear and their journeys together during the tumultuous times of WWI. It's also the story about how this same bear met a little boy who would eventually spur entire generations to hug their teddy bears just a little bit tighter. Additionally, the back of the book contains a really lovely surprise that I don't want to spoil for ya'll. :-) I think this would make a wonderful bedtime read-aloud. You could also encourage your child to read this book aloud to their teddy bear. (Then take lots of photos of it.) Believe it or not, this exercise will help to strengthen your child's confidence in reading aloud to others (or to themselves). As for me, I can't wait for the opportunity to read this one in a storytime. XD 9/10

Today's National Winnie the Pooh Day!

It's celebrated on January 18, AA Milne's birthday (makes sense). I might have to put aside Sherlock Holmes for a minute and give one of the Winnie the Pooh books a quick reread.

 

A long time ago, Winnie the Pooh was the book with the highest average rating on my goodreads list. Now it's HP7, and the AA Milne book with the highest average rating is Now We Are Six.

Winnie-the-Pooh - A.A. Milne,Ernest H. Shepard

"Et si quelqu'un sait quelque chose à propos de quelque chose, se dit Nounours, Hibou est le quelqu'un qui sait quelque chose à propos de quelque chose, dit-il, ou alors mon nom n'est pas Winnie l'Ourson, dit-il. Et c'est bien mon nom, ajouta-t-il. Donc, pas d'erreur."

The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh
The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh - A.A. Milne,Ernest H. Shepard I have been reading this a as a bedtime story for my little brother and sister. I never know what books they will like, but they both love these stories! It's hard to find something they both enjoy and I was pleasantly surprised by their reaction to this book!

My only real problem with it is some of the grammar is choppy and weird in places, but otherwise it's great for kids, and perfect for a bedtime story.
