"GranE! GranE! Come here! We discovered something new in the Pooh book!”
Philip and I were having fun pouring over a totally amazing Winnie the Pooh pop-up book that has become a treasured reminder of the life of my friend Barby Britsch, storyteller and children’s literature professor, who died a few weeks ago. Her son David graciously said we could have the book for Philip. Barby’s spirit hovered, as Philip William, my great grandson, discovered that the book included punch-out cut-outs of Pooh, Christopher Robin and all their friends.
Philip was enthralled. "We discovered something NEW!” he repeated, with the pure enthusiasm only a five-year old with a great imagination, and the power of that magic age, could muster!
