A Walk Around the Hundred Acre Wood
Logs due by noon, Tuesday, February 22
Pooh, Christopher Robin, and all of their friends love to go for walks and explore their woods. During February, you might want to imagine that you’re taking a stroll with them.
If you were to walk all the way around a hundred acres, it would equal 1.6 miles. Could you walk that far in a day? Maybe you could set a goal for how many days in the month you’d like to walk 1.6 miles. If that’s a bit much for your legs, maybe you’d like to make a goal to walk around the forest over the course of the week. Are you like Tigger and full of energy? Perhaps you want to try for twice around the woods each day, or even more! All that activity makes me want a little something. Where’s my honey?
You set your goal. Our log will help you keep track. Anyone participating in the challenge, whether you meet your goal or not, can turn in this card to be entered into a drawing for a set of A. A. Milne books. We’ll have the drawing at our birthday party the evening of February 25th.
A Photo Expotition!
Entries Due by noon on Tuesday, February 22.
Join Christopher Robin and friends on a further expotition by seeing how many of these things you can find and photograph. We’ll want to see you in the photo as well! Turn in your photographs by noon on Tuesday, February 22nd. Make sure you have your name, phone number, and library card number visible.

Since 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends—Piglet, Owl, Tigger, and the ever doleful Eeyore—have endured as the unforgettable creations of A.A. Milne, who wrote this book for his son, Christopher Robin, and Ernest H. Shepard, who lovingly gave Pooh and his companions shape. These characters and their stories are timeless treasures of childhood that continue to speak to all of us with the kind of freshness and heart that distinguishes true storytelling. Join us in the Hundred Acre Wood, where Pooh is a whimsical philosopher, staunch friend, plump, and fond of honey. He calls himself a Bear of Very Little Brain, but is wise and loving.
