  1. I grew up with Winnie the Pooh, the books, the TV show (remember the one with the real-life characters, or people in suits I suppose?). My eldest sister especially was completely obsessed with Pooh Bear, right into her 20’s. Last year, 1 year after my older sister died in a car accident, I took my daughter on the Winnie the Pooh ride at Tokyo Disney (a trip we funded with money from her life insurance), as soon as I saw that bear, heard that voice, I was transported back to my childhood, to memories of my sister, luckily it was dark and loud in that ride, because the tears came thick and fast. Pooh Bear will forever be my connection to my sister.

  2. My brother is 12 years older than me and my fondest memory is of him reading me The House at Pooh Corner when I was around three. Apparently I loved Winnie the Pooh so much that he gave me his stuffed Pooh Bear from when he was a baby. I still have that Bear and I’ve passed it on to my daughter. She loves holding him while I read the Pooh Bear stories to her.

  3. My husband remembers as a young child, sitting out in the backyard with his Mum. He had a copy of ‘When we are six’ and said to his Mum that he wanted to be a reader. My husband recalls this as a very fond and specific memory linked with Winnie-the-Pooh.

    • Oh I love that he said he wanted to be a reader! What a classic ‘When we are Six’ is! We gave it to Chickpea when she turned 6 too.

  4. My favourite Christopher Robin memory is the poem “halfway down”.
    My grandparents used to read it to me and they had an extremely high and steep staircase at their front door.
    All serious grandparent chats happened sitting on the stairs, halfway down and all family events focused on the stair case. Cousin photos and Christmas stockings hanging down the bannister in age order.
    My grandfather has recently moved out after losing my grandmother and we had one last grandchildren and great grandchildren photo going down the stairs, in age order. There are now so many of us that we filled every step.

  5. ‘They’re changing the guard at Buckingham Palace, Christopher Robin went with Alice’ – Aunt Alice gave and read A A Milne books to my dad in the 50’s, and then continued sharing them with us. This poem always keeps my memories of her sparkling.

  6. I was so happy to share Winnie the Pooh with my children BUT my favourite memory was when I was travelling with two colleagues and we quoted long sections of The House at Pooh Corner as we drove through a summer storm.

  7. I still have an story album book of Winnie the Pooh that was given to me for a birthday in the 1970s. He’s always had a special place in my heart.

  8. My grandmother loved the Winnie the Pooh books, especially the poetry. She taught me the poem about Alexander beetle when I was quite young and now I recite it to my children.

  9. Playing “Pooh Sticks” was a family tradition originating from growing up with Winnie The Pooh. It was so much a part of our family culture I didn’t think twice about how else it may be interpreted until my niece and nephew looked at me in absolute horror at my suggestion we play Pooh Sticks in a running river. They imagined something faecal rather than a twig racing it’s way downstream! ????

  10. My Mum reading aloud in bed to me and my two sisters and giggling at Pooh’s attempts at being a rain cloud. The illustrations captivated me and the stories were charming. As an adult I now appreciate Winnie the Pooh for recognising, in a simple manner, the most important things in life- someone to love and something yummy to eat!! I look forward to sharing the stories with my own children.

  11. I loved passing on my old, battered copy of ‘When we were 6’ to my daughter when she turned six, and reading it together. As an adult I enjoy the-reading Milne, and taking new meaning from his texts

    • I still have my old battered copy too! And isn’t it fascinating taking new meaning from a text – like having a ‘lightbulb’ moment! Good luck!

  12. As a child Pooh gave me wonderful, captivating stories to read and listen to, who doesn’t love a talking bear! As an adult I still love those stories just as much but also his outlook on life and the lesson of being loyal to your friends. My most fond memory is being given a Pooh cookie jar when I was in my early twenties and bought my first home. It has Pooh, Piglet, Tiger and Eeyore. I am in my forties now and it is still in my kitchen …

  13. As the rain pours down today, I remember snuggling on the couch with my Nan, drinking hot chocolate sweetened with honey of course!. She would read stories of a silly old bear and his friends to me and later we would go out and play Pooh sticks. Winnie the Pooh will be forever entwined with my memories of my Nan

  14. Somehow, strangely, as a child I was never read Winnie the Pooh (possibly my parents needed some CBD love to help identify the classics). But, oh, the joy as an adult of discovering these gems and cosying up in bed reading Christopher Robin’s adventures and Pooh’s wisdom to my own little ones. And having the words simultaneously delight them and reasonate with my own adult self!

  15. Unfortunately I didn’t grow up with the books of A.A.Milne…..we really couldn’t afford a lot of books when I was a child and we didn’t live close to a library. That’s why books became so treasured. I discovered Christopher Robin when I was at Teachers College and again when i went back to uni to study Teacher Librarianship. I read and re-read the stories and poems to my students, my own children and now my grandchildren. My grandsons now have my books, that I used for teaching, on their bookshelves. I have since become a wedding celebrant and couples often include excerpts in their ceremonies or I will add in a quote or two from A.A.Milne. Christopher Robin…your own story was sad..but the stories with you in them are joyous. “Some people care too much. I think it is called Love.” (A.A.Milne)

  16. I loved reading the stories as a child and especially related to the melancholy that is Eyeore! I read them to my own children as babies, I even painted Pooh and his balloon stalking the bees on their nursery walls. These had such an impact on my children that 10 years ago when my life came crashing down around me my daughter bought me a pendant that I wear every day with the quote ““You are Braver than you believe, Stronger than you seem, and Smarter than you think.” AA Milne wrote such beautiful words to live by!

  17. I love reading my childhood Pooh Bear books to my children, one of which loves maps. The version I have, have beautifully illustrated maps as the end papers and at the moment, these are the big draw cards. Mr 5 could just look at maps for hours… and he does! We love finding interesting places Pooh visits together.

  18. I missed out on this book as a child but enjoyed sharing it with children each year as a teacher-librarian. The school had both primary and secondary students so I frequently had teachers and high school students in there at the same time as my classes. I was so chuffed one day when the English teacher commented on my reading of the book and how much he enjoyed the way I read it. It’s a book that lives on through generations and on a recent trip to England I had fun playing pooh sticks with my sister.

  19. My childhood memory is reading the books and just loving the idea of the honey pot jar that i pleaded with my mum to get one. I adored Pooh. My daughter now adores the books too and love piglet, both of them are small and unsure but still go on and be brave.
