Winnie-the-Pooh has been a beloved character of children for decades. This month our Book Buddies group, a book club for kids in grades K-2, was all about A. A. Milne's characters in the 100 Acre Woods. There are so many Pooh stories by the original author A.A. Milne, lots of Disney adaptations, and books about A. A. Milne and the origin of Winnie the Pooh. Below is a list of some newer books to check out and old classics to read again.
