Learn about the bear who was the real Winnie-the-Pooh.

When veterinarian and Canadian soldier Harry Colebourn saw and bought a young bear while at a train station, his life changed forever. Harry named the bear Winnie, short for Winnipeg, his company’s home town. He took care of Winnie until he was sent to France during World War I. No longer able to care for Winnie, Harry found a new home for the bear at The London Zoo. There, Winnie met a young boy named Christopher Robin. Come learn the true, heartwarming story of the real Winnie-the-Pooh and create your own Winnie book mark.
