Celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day!
There are some very special bears around. And some have been us from our own childhoods to the present day - and we still smile when we see them.
Winnie the Pooh is one of those legendary bears, but a comforting sort as well.
The stories of Winnie the Pooh and his friends have kept many a child and adult amused for hours - and not just for leisure reading but for business too! Books full of friendship, gentleness, time for thinking characters, each full of his or her own individual characteristics.
They have given many a child and adult wonderful times, as they read the stories together, and introduced many a little one to the joys of reading.
There are the Winnie the Pooh characters who resided in Ashdown Forest: Christopher Robin, Eeyore, Piglet, Owl, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo and the bouncy "I'm the only one" Tigger.
The books tell of the adventures they get up to - the time that Pooh Bear rescues his friend Piglet in the great flood, using an umbrella. Or the time that Winnie the Pooh got stuck in Rabbit's front door after visiting Rabbit and eating too much honey for elevenses. Or the time that the friends all went off to look for the North Pole.

“We'll be Friends Forever, won't we, Pooh?' asked Piglet.
