A Bear Named Winnie

If you all are not aware (as I am not sure that I have shared it here on the blog or not ) I work midnocs at a shelter home for the elderly. So as I sat there last night completing a crossword puzzle, yes playing a game as the residents were primarily asleep and the quietness can become a bit boring. But .... back to the message I was trying to share.... as I sat doing my crossword puzzle book the clue was who was Winnie the Pooh's creator. So then my mind started to rumble again.....



Pooh Bear .. short for Winnie the Pooh is the creation of the English author A. A. Milne The famous bear is fictional of course with a storyline of friends and events of his life. As a child of the '70s I recall Winnie the Pooh stuffed creatures being nearly everywhere. However, the character of Winnie the Pooh had showed up nearly 50 years before.



Winnie the Pooh was first introduced to the world by the author Milne in 1926. Soon after another book The House at Pooh Corner helped share more of the story in 1928. The illustrations by E.H. Shepard helped share the story of Winnie the Pooh and build the readers imagination. More books would follow in later years. In addition The story of Winnie The Pooh was translated into many languages so other children could ready about this wondrous bear as well.



Who is Winnie The Pooh:

The author A. A. Milne created the story of Winnie the Pooh with inspiration from his son Christopher Robin Milne and a great imagination. The main character Winnie the Pooh was created based on Milne's son teddy bear.So there is the story to be in the book Christopher Robin is the boy with the bear Winnie the Pooh and the remaining characters were all created and named after toys that Milne's son had as well. So through Milne's son Christopher Robin the characters of Pooh bear, piglet, eeyore, Kanga, Roo and Tigger had all been invented. The characters of Owl an Rabbit came from the imagination of Milne


Did you know in 2006 Winnie the Pooh received a star on Hollywood walk of Fame
