Alan Alexander Milne took his inspiration for his iconic children’s stories from his son and his son’s love for his stuffed animals. Milne’s son Christopher Robin, the name he used for his child character in his stories, was born in 1920. In August 1921, young Christopher Robin received a gift of a stuffed bear for his first birthday. He named his bear Edward Bear. When Milne asked Christopher Robin what he should name the bear in his stories, Christopher Robin replied, “Winnie-the-Pooh.” Source: ThoughtCo.com Alan Alexander Milne was an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various poems.

Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.
For I am a bear of very little brain, and long words bother me.
