I fell in love with the cover first and then for the story of Winnipeg, the bear who inspired Winnie the Pooh. This book begins when Winnie was yet to be named and lives with her mother in the forest. Before dying the mother bear admonishes Winnie to be brave. As we see Winnie's story we see her not only being brave, but rising above her circumstances to make others around her feel better. What a beautiful goal to have in life. Thank you for that lesson, Winnie!
