Since 1924, children have delighted in the poetry and stories written by A.A. Milne. Milne was first an editor and author for adults, but after his son, Christopher Robin, was born, Milne turned his writing abilities to new fields. His first book of poems, When We Were Very Young, thrilled readers of all ages. For Christmas of 1925, Milne wrote a new story for the Evening News. With that publication, A New Story for Children, Winnie the Pooh, about Christopher Robin and his Teddy Bear, the story of Winnie the Pooh was born. Additional stories and poems were written and published through the years, each greeted eagerly by the readers.

This workshop will overview the life and literary work of A.A. Milne, including selections from his poetry and the Winnie the Pooh stories. Suggestions will be made for teaching primary students to identify literary elements in the stories, including plot, charaterization, setting, theme, and style.
