Winnie the Pooh


Barbara J. Feldman

A children’s book character that endures seventy-seven years must be something special; and Winnie-the-Pooh certainly is. A.A. Milne actually only published two books based on Winnie and his beloved friends, but they have since been featured in dozens of movies, videos, easy-reader books, and even have their own attractions at Disneyland and Disney World. Here’s where you can find the hundred-acre- woods gang online.

  • 75 Years of Pooh5 stars

    Pooh's publishers created this thoughtful and delightful site a few years ago in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the publication of Winnie- the-Pooh in 1926. There are interactive games, Pooh recipes, and audio samples of Charles Kuralt reading from two Pooh books. But the best clicks are the Pooh Party package (seventeen printable pages including invitations and party games) and the chapter-by-chapter Winnie-the-Pooh Classroom Activities.

  • Just Pooh5 stars

    At first glance, Justin Valentin's wordy fan site may look like it's only for "older" Pooh afficionados, but younger fans need only click on Fun to find what they're looking for. Treats to be discovered include a fabulous Shockwave Honey Tree game, Pooh e-cards to send to friends and family, and a comprehensive twenty-five question quiz. Other noteworthy sections are History of Pooh, book excerpts (Stories), and a character guide (100 Acre Woods.)

  • The Page at Pooh Corner5 stars

    James Milne's Page at Pooh Corner is an excellent resource for those wanting to learn more about the books' origins. It contains biographies of author A.A. Milne, illustrator E.H. Shepard, and the real-life Christopher Robin (the author's son.) It also has photos of the original stuffed animals that served as inspiration for the world famous stories. Is webmaster Milne related to the author? "As far as my family can tell, we're not related ... Still, it's fun having the same last name!"

  • Christopher Robin's Winnie the Pooh Character Guide5 stars

    Topher's fan site has lots more to offer than the character guide, but the who's who of Pooh is a good place to start your site tour. After that, poke around to find the games, which include quizzes, a word search, a crossword, and my personal favorite, the Winnie-the-Pooh Mad Lib. Another best-bet click is "Winnie-the-Pooh FAQ: Your Frequently Asked Questions And Other Things You Should Know" which nicely organizes answers to over a hundred Pooh questions.

  • Winnie-the-Pooh Trivia and Quizzes3 stars

    FunTrivia.com is a collection of reader created quizzes organized by topic. This page contains seven Pooh quizzes, which range from five to fifteen questions each. Unregistered visitors can play all the quizzes, but free registration is required to save your scores or to create a quiz. "According to the song Pooh sings while suspended under a blue balloon, what does 'every little cloud' do?" Play Winnie-the-Pooh Musical Genius to find out.
