Today is A.A. Milne’s birthday! Though he was born long ago on this day in 1882 he will always be remembered for his children’s story books, particularly Winnie the Pooh and his friends. You know the gang. Christopher Robin, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, Roo, and Winnie, of course, made reading fun!
- Winnie the Pooh first appeared on the printed page in 1926.
- All of the characters were based on toys that were owned by the author’s son.
- Pooh Corner in Hartfield, East Sussex, is where the books were written.
- Winnie the Pooh has been translated in numerous languages, including Latin.
And you didn’t even have to ask. We have plenty Winnie the Pooh books here at the Buena Park Library.
So celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day by reading some storybooks about Winnie and his friends.
