CURRICULUM ~ Remember Me Pockets: January ~ AUTHORS: A. A. Milne

Alan Alexander Milne was born January 18, 1882 in London, England.  He is, of course, the author of the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh stories, which he wrote in the mid to late 1920's.  The tales of Winnie stemmed from a poem, first published in Vanity Fair, called "Vespers."  The poem featured his son, Christopher Robin Milne.  The cute little bear who was very chubby eventually was expanded upon to create the delightful tales so many children have enjoyed.

Since A. A. Milne was born in January, he is included in the Remember Me Pocket for Authors for this month.  There is an "Author Biography" (photo below) and an activity puzzle to remember important information about him.  Little puzzle pieces were cut out and glued in the appropriate places to create "A Line of Time for A. A. Milne."  Alisdair enjoyed completing this, although he could guess which answer went where without even having to refer to the actual Biography.  However, the next activity (for author J. R. R. Tolkien) was much more challenging!
