Every year Pooh fans around the world celebrate the birthday of the creator of Winnie the Pooh -- A. A. Milne - January 18th.
In 2013 I was blessed to have the privilege of a tour of A.A. Milne's home in Cotchford Farms in England. I actually stood in the study where he wrote the stories.
So, give your favorite bear a hug and enjoy a smackeral or two of something sweet! Or, pick up a copy of the new Pooh book, "The Best Bear in the World' - illustrated by the talented Mark Burgess.
