One of our favorite bears

We all know about Winnie-the-Pooh; or do we? I know, right now a lot of people are mad about Disney’s plan to replace Christopher Robin, but the bear of very little brain is more than just a movie – he’s a book.

Yes, a book. And the recent barrage of Pooh movies are nowhere near it. But except for a miniscule mention that the movie is based on the book by A. A. Milne, not many people know about it. Well, we’d like to change that, because it’s a great story! And yes, I am hiding behind A. A. Milne’s book in my picture!

  1. What does the “A. A.” stand for?

  2. His full name is Alan Alexander Milne.

  3. Whew! Now we know why he stuck to A. A. Milne!

  4. The older Winnie the Pooh videos are pretty good, such as Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, or Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree.

  5. Yes, but they cut out some things that Milne put in, such as when Pooh is visiting Rabbit. Rabbit asks if he wants condensed milk or honey on his bread. In the book, Pooh says “Both.” And then, so as not to seem so greedy, he says “But never mind the bread.” In the video, they don’t include the part about not seeming so greedy.
