Winnie-the-Pooh, also called Pooh Bear and Pooh, is a fictional teddy bear created by English author A. A. Milne and English illustrator E. H. Shepard. The first collection of stories about the character was the book Winnie-the-Pooh. Even though the cartoon character was created almost a century ago, Winnie the Pooh is still loved by millions of fans all over the world.
The aim of the day is to consider what we can learn from the characters in A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh books.
The characters in the Winnie-the-Pooh books all have distinct personalities, each revealing both strengths and things they find difficult.

Eeyore does not rush to do things, but takes his time. He is intelligent animal, but tends to keep to himself.
Piglet is small, yet he is a very brave animal. What he loves doing best is going on adventures with Pooh.
