Introduction

Winnie the Pooh Day is celebrated every year on January 18th to commemorate author A.A. Milne’s birthday. Winnie the Pooh is Milne's most famous creation, a lovable bear who lives in the Hundred Acre Wood with his friends Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and Rabbit. These beloved stories have been shared with children and adults alike for nearly a century, and Winnie the Pooh Day is the perfect time to revisit the classic tales.
