The sweet nature of the character named Winnie-the-Pooh, was directly inspired by a real bear so gentle that children were allowed to play with her. That real bear’s life story was as unlikely as a talking bear, and yet this is what happened.
I just recently joined this site also and let me tell you it is WONDERFUL!!!! I am an activity director at a senior center and not only do our older seniors enjoy it but we also have a group respite program geared towards participants with dementia and Alzheimer's, that respond really well to the trivia/quizzes that the website offers. I am so thankful to have this site as a resource to assist with enhancing their quality of life!
