This month, A.A. Milne's beloved bear celebrates a big birthday. Winnie-the-Pooh made his first appearance as "Edward Bear" in a short poem titled "Teddy Bear" which was published in Punch magazine on Feb. 13, 1924.
In honor of Pooh's 90th, we'll listen back to a rare, 1929 recording, in which Milne reads from the resulting book, When We Were Very Young.
So find a pot of your favorite "hunny" and click the audio link above to hear Milne's reading.
