Finding Winnie
Finding Winnie The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear By Mattick, Lindsay Book - 2015

So many of us have loved the stories about Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood ... but how many of us have been aware of how these stories started in the first place?
In this wonderful picture book we learn about the Canadian vet, Harry Coleman, who, on his way to Europe to attend to the horses being used in the First World War, purchased a bear cub in northern Ontario.
The cub was given the name "Winnie" and Lindsay Mattick's story goes on to explain how the little bear ended up in the London Zoo, where a little boy named Christopher Robin Milne used to visit her .....
The family connection between the author and the Canadian vet, revealed at the end of the story, contributes to this very touching story.
