Happy Birthday Alan Alexander Milne— A.A. Milne (January 18 1982- January 1956)

“You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” A.A. Milne

Pooh Bear has many friends—“fearful Piglet, bossy Rabbit, single-minded Kanga, glum and underappreciated Eeyore, and energetic Tiger —and who can resist the charm of Winnie-the-Pooh himself, who loves “ a little something” at eleven o’clock?

~ Who are your stuffed animal friends?
~ Which of Pooh’s friends do you like the most—why?
~ Who are you most alike —Eeyore, who frets, Piglet who hesitates, Rabbit who calculates, Owl who pontificates or Pooh?
~ Would you like to live in the Hundred Acre Wood?

A thought to ponder: Today the 2010 Newberry and Caldecott awards were announced. A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh is loved and admired —and never won an award.
