• The House at Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne

    Read by Mrs. Conran

    Just as we did for Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne, let's make a picture book to go along with this story, too.  Again, I'll make suggestions as to what you can draw, but if you have other ideas, by all means do that as it's your picture book. Rmember you may use whatever medium you like to make your drawings (crayon, markers, colored pencils, pastels, or a variety), but try to put each of them on 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper. Then when we get to come back together, bring all your pictures, I'll put a spiral binding on them, and you'll have a reminder of this book.

    Chapter 1a

       In Which A House Is Built at Pooh Corner for Eeyore

    To begin our picture book, how about a drawing of Pooh and Piglet, either at Pooh's house eating their snackeral, or on the gate, learning Pooh's song, or on their walk to find Eeyore. 

    Chapter 1b

    How about a drawing of Eeyore and his new house?

    Chapter 2a

       In Which Tigger Comes to the Forest and Has Breakfast

    A picture of Tigger perhaps?

    Chapter 2b

    Maybe a drawing of Tigger taking Roo's medicine?

    Chapter 3a

       In Which A Search Is Organdized, and Piglet Nearly Meets the Heffalump Again

    Lots of possibilities here - maybe Pooh counting his honey pots, or Rabbit organizing his search, or Pooh falling on Piglet

    Chapter 3b

    Perhaps a picture of what you imagine a Heffalump would look like, or of Christopher Robin finding Pooh and Piglet, or of Piglet finding Small

    Chapter 4a

       In Which It Is Shown That Tiggers Don't Climb Trees

    Maybe a drawing of Pooh sitting on the stone in the middle of the stream or of Kanga sending Tigger and Roo off with their sandwiches.

    Chapter 4b

    How about a picture of Roo or Tigger being rescued from the tree

    Chapter 5a

       In Which Rabbit Has a Busy Day, and We Learn What Christopher Robin Does in the Mornings

    Perhaps a drawing of Rabbit looking at Christopher Robin's note, or of Owl and Rabbit deciding what to do

    Chapter 5b

    You could have Piglet bringing a bouquet of violets to Eeyore, or Eeyore showing Rabbit and Piglet his letter A made out of sticks?

    Chapter 6a

       In Which Pooh Invents a New Game and Eeyore Joins In

    Maybe a picture of Pooh tossing the rock in the river to rescue Eeyor

    Chapter 6b

     How about a picture of everyone playing Poohsticks

    Chapter 7a

       In Which Tigger Is Unbounced

    Perhaps a drawing of Rabbit talking to Pooh and Piglet about Tigger

    Chapter 7b

    Maybe a picture of Pooh and Piglet following the sound of the honey pots calling or of Tigger finding Rabbit

    Chapter 8a

       In Which Piglet Does a Very Grand Thing

    Maybe either a picture of Pooh and Piglet walking in the wind with Piglet's ears streaming behind him or of Owl's house falling all topsy turvy

    Chapter 8b

    How about a picture of Piglet being hoisted up to the letter box by Owl and Pooh

    Chapter 9a

       In Which Eeyore Finds the Wolery and Owl Moves Into It

    Possibly a drawing of everyone helping Owl get his things out of the blown-down house

    Chapter 9b

    Maybe a picture of Eeyore showing Christopher Robin the house he found for Owl

    Chapter 10a

       In Which Christopher Robin and Pooh Come to an Enchanted Place, and We Leave Them There

    Maybe a picture of all the animals giving Christopher Robin Eeyore's Poem

    Chapter 10b

    How about a final drawing of Christopher Robin and Pooh Bear in the Enchanted Forest

    The End

    Thank you for sharing the adventures of Winnie the Pooh and all his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood with me. Have a wonderful summer. Stay safe and healthy, and I look forward to seeing all of you when school begins again. Love, Mrs. C
