    I worked in close proximity to the real Winnie the Pooh for five years From 2006 to 2011 he was a daily delight To clarify, I was working alongside the original Winnie the Pooh toys owned by the real Christopher Robin, son of A.A Milne in New York Public Library s Central Children s Room We had Piglet, Tigger, Kanga no Roo , Eeyore, and Winnie himself Though ironically I never read his books as a child, in my time as a children s librarian working in the Children s Center at 42nd Street I I worked in close proximity to the real Winnie the Pooh for five years From 2006 to 2011 he was a daily delight To clarify, I was working alongside the original Winnie the Pooh toys owned by the real Christopher Robin, son of A.A Milne in New York Public Library s Central Children s Room We had Piglet, Tigger, Kanga no Roo , Eeyore, and Winnie himself Though ironically I never read his books as a child, in my time as a children s librarian working in the Children s Center at 42nd Street I became well versed in his story Winnie was purchased at Harrods for Christopher Robin who eventually named him Winnie after some bear he d seen in a zoo If pressed to conjure up facts about that zoo bear I might have b...

    I have read this to at least 8 classes grades 1 3 and they absolutely love it and are engaged asking terrific questions This bears journey during WWI to England is pretty amazing Toss in the emotional appeal of a man leaving behind his pet and they are hooked One of my favorites so far this year.
