In Which
We Are Introduced to Winnie-the-Pooh and Some Bees,
and the Stories Begin

Jingju was a bit not well tonight with a touch of a fever. I put her to bed early, and because she was a not too bouncy sort of girl (she often is at bedtime), I thought to read her Winnie-the-Pooh for the first time. I wasn't sure if she'd love the silly old bear, since you never can tell with little girls. Well, she lay very, very still and listened very carefully. She was properly giggly at the at the giggly parts and nicely sleepy at the ending part. I would have liked to have read on to Pooh Goes Visiting and Gets Into a Tight Spot, but little girls with colds need to get their sleep. So, tomorrow we will visit the 100 Aker Wood again and meet the rest of Pooh's friends. I think she'll like that. I think she's that sort of girl...a girl who like bears and humming hums, and reciting tiddely poms.

  1. So glad that Jingju likes Winnie the Pooh. When parents and children share the love of a character, it helps to reinforce the magic of reading.
