A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories are a couple of my favorites. It was absolutely wonderful to read the true story behind the stories- and it’s as charming as one could imagine it would be. Author’s notes includes more information about the soldier, the bear, and the author. Plus there are some pictures on the endpapers.
I’d been wanting to read this picture book for awhile since it’s been getting lots of positive reviews. It didn’t disappoint. It was almost unbelievable to read the extents of what people had to overcome- and also that discrimination of this sort is still happening now. An eye opener and a hopeful book that love will win over hate and fear.
