Summer Reading Day 44: Today’s book was Finding Winnie by Lindsay Mattick, the story of the real-life Winnie-The-Pooh. A lot of people know that Christopher Robin and his stuffed bear Winnie really existed, but many don’t know the story of the bear that inspired the stuffed bear that then inspired A.A. Milne’s classic tales of the Hundred Acre Wood. I certainly didn’t, but it was wonderful to read about!
The length is a bit much for a one-year-old, so definitely save for older kids or the most patient of baby bookworms, but if you do, you’ll be treated to a heartwarming and moving tale, especially for animal lovers. The illustrations are darling, and the twist ending in this one is really something. Big thumbs up from us.
