Tomorrow, 18th January, marks author A.A. Milne’s birthday so it’s officially Winnie the Pooh Day! What a fabulous excuse for a teddy bear’s picnic with lashings of honey on toast followed by endless stories about the adventures of Pooh and his pals.
Winnie the Pooh is without a doubt one of Wonderboy’s favourite storybook characters and he was lucky enough to meet the bear himself last year at Disney World. We also happened to bump into Tigger who was all too happy to engage in copious amounts of bouncing!
We love our Winnie the Pooh stories – they may have been written in a different time, with words which can seem old fashioned now but they’re full of adventure, encouragement and fun. What wonderful concepts to inspire little minds.
So, dear A.A. Milne, thank you for sharing your fanciful imagination with us. You’ve taught us all to embrace adventure, value our friends and to work together. Those kind of lessons are timeless.
If you’d like to celebrate Winnie the Pooh day with your little ones, then have a look at the Pinterest board I’ve put together with some ideas for activities.
