National Winnie the Pooh Day is on January 18th every year, which commemorates author, A.A. Milne’s birthday. He got his name from his son, Christoper Robin’s toy bear Winnie. He brought the heart-warming bear to life in 1926 in stories which also featured his son as Winnie The Pooh’s best friend.
My toddler grand babies and I are reading Winnie The Pooh And His Friends: Blackberry Surprise. If you’re interested in purchasing a copy, Amazon currently has some good deals on used copies, which is what we have. It’s very rare that I buy children’s books brand new.
If you’re a regular reader here you know I love shopping on Amazon, and I’m an affiliate as well as a long time customer (since 2003!). For your convenience, my affiliate link will be linked to the photos below, or you can go here: Winnie the Pooh And His Friends: Blackberry Surprise.
TIP: This book is the perfect length for a toddler bedtime story; not to short, not to long.
The story starts with Piglet waking up Winnie the Pooh with news of a surprise that Owl had.
Owl’s surprise was a bush full of delicious blackberries.
They want to bring some back to all their friends but realized they didn’t have a pail. Winnie the Pooh comes up with a great idea and saves the day. All the friends, Kango, Roo, Tigger, Rabbit and Eeyore gather at Pooh’s house for blackberry pie.
