In a recent blog post, Shelly Smith of NYPL’s Preservation Division describes how we keep the original Winnie-the-Pooh teddy bear that once belonged to Christopher Robin Milne, son of A. A. Milne, and the basis for the character Christopher Robin in the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh stories, safe and well tended.
You can currently find Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends on display in the exhibit The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter, which has recently been extended to September 7, 2014 due to popular demand.
