Today is Pooh Day!  Today we celebrate the birth of Alan Alexander Milne the author of Winnie the Pooh.
As an adult, have you ever read “Winnie the Pooh” - a story about a teddy bear, his friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, not to mention his only human friend, Christopher Robin? Well, you might be surprised to know that one of the world’s best loved children’s books was not written for children at all. 
Milne’s intention was to appeal to the child that is in all of us. The first mention of this cuddly bear which belonged to Milne’s son, Christopher,  was in a poem called “When we were very young”,  published in “Punch” magazine for adults. Pooh officially came into being as a short bedtime story in the Christmas eve edition of the Evening News newspaper of 1925 and this subsequently became the first chapter of the book entitled “Winnie the Pooh” published in 1926. This iconic, honey-loving bear and his friends even made it to Hollywood in a series of Disney adaptations of his adventures.
Although Pooh is not a very clever bear he has a big heart and is loved by all but especially Piglet.  Here are some very intuitively, charming lines that I hope will appeal to the child in YOU:
“How do you spell 'love'?" - Piglet
"You don't spell it...you feel it." - Pooh”
“We'll be friends forever, won't we, Pooh?' asked Piglet.
Even longer,' Pooh answered.”
“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh?" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you.” 
“What day is it?" – Pooh.
It's today," squeaked Piglet.
My favourite day," said Pooh.”
