Happy Birthday Winnie-the-Pooh! Listen to A.A. Milne read from When We Were Very Young
Posted by: Mary Burkey

NPR has a short homage to everyone’s favorite bear of very little brain – Christopher Robin’s beloved Winnie-the-Pooh. It was 90 years ago this month that the immortal residents of the Hundred Acre Wood first made an appearance in “Teddy Bear,” published in Punch magazine on Feb. 13, 1924.┬áIncluded in the Weekend Edition tip-of-the-hunny-pot is a recording made by Milne himself, in which we meet Pooh & Piglet, hunting the mysterious Woozle. Listen in!

I am the proud owner of a pre-Disney Winnie-the-Pooh, a permanent resident of my bedroom for over 50 years, along with Eeyore and his button-on tail. Memorizing the Pooh verses was one of my earliest pre-reading adventures, and I still remember when those words on the page actually turned into meaning in my head. I love any audiobook of Milne’s work, but have especially fond memories of the old LP recordings we had growing up in the 1950s, featuring Maurice Evans. Look what I found on YouTube!
