Winnie the Pooh is the beloved fictional bear who lives in a forest in England. A. A. Milne created the bear based on his own son’s toy teddy bear. The book has been translated into more than two dozen languages. In this version, author, poet, and teacher Leonard Wolf has transliterated the story from the Yiddish, which is written in Hebrew characters, into Latin letters. The first paragraph of each story is presented in Yiddish.
Read aloud, one can hear how the stories sound in Yiddish.
