Before Winnie-the-Pooh, there was a real bear named Winnie. And she was a girl!
In 1914, Harry Colebourn, a veterinarian on his way to tend horses in World War I, followed his heart and rescued a baby bear. He named her Winnie, after his hometown of Winnipeg, and he took the bear to war. Harry Colebourn's real-life great-granddaughter tells the true story of a remarkable friendship and an even more remarkable journey--from the fields of Canada to a convoy across the ocean to an army base in England...and finally to the London Zoo, where Winnie made another new friend: a real boy named Christopher Robin. Based on the 2016 Caldecott Medal winner, Finding Winnie is the remarkable true story of the bear who inspired Winnie-the-Pooh.

I knew RinTinTin was a real dog from WWI but didn't know WinnieThePooh was a real WWI bear. Interesting tale geared toward young kids. Written by descendent of the man who rescued the bear as a cub.
I would have preferred just the bear's story rather than the story of a woman reading the bear's story to her little boy.

Disappointing I was expecting a movie about the author. Give it a 5 star for the kids cause they'll love it.
