Illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard
This week, instead of featuring just one storybook, we're featuring the four books for which A.A. Milne is probably most known: Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner , and his two books of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six (all featured conveniently in Pooh's Library).
Follow us to the Hundred Acre Wood with Christopher Robin, Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga and Roo, and Tigger too, in some of the world's most beloved children's books.
After reading any of these books, all featuring our favorite Silly Old Bear, enjoy making these fun recipes and crafts:

About the Author
Although best known for his delightful poems and beloved Pooh stories, A.A. Milne also wrote for adults. To learn more about this wonderful author and the history of Pooh refer to the A.A. Milne mini biography. Another delightful read is A Short History of Pooh and Winnie, featuring photos of the real bear cub, Winnie, which inspired Christopher Robin Milne's bear.
