This week we feature "Teddy Bear" from the young reader's collection When We Were Very Young by A.A. Milne. A.A. Milne lived from 1882 – 1956 and was a talented novelist, poet, playwright and essayist. He is the author of the childhood favorites Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner.
This week's Cup of Poetry corresponds with the publication of Return to the Hundred Acre Wood by David Benedictus, a companion volume that truly captures the style of A. A. Milne and a worthy sequel to The House at Pooh Corner and Winnie-the-Pooh.
