Christopher Robin Goes to School

Winnie-the Pooh is one of the most loved children’s characters of all time. Of course, Pooh is the bear who belongs to Christopher Robin. At the end of the one Winnie-The-Pooh story we learn that Christopher Robin is soon to “go away” to school. Here’s how the story goes:

Now there comes a time in everyone’s life when toys and games are replaced by pencils and books. You see Christopher Robin was going away to school. Nobody in the forest knew exactly why or where he was going, all they knew was that it had something to do with twice times and ABCs and where a place called Brazil is.

“Pooh, what do you like doing best in the world?”

“What I like best is me going to visit you and saying, ‘How about a smackerel of honey?”

“I like doing that too, but what I like doing best is Nothing”

“How do you do Nothing?”

“Well, it’s when grown-ups ask ‘What are you going to do?’ and you say ‘Nothing’. And you go and do it.”

“I like that, let’s do it all the time.”

“You know something Pooh, I’m not going to do just Nothing anymore”

“You mean never again?”

“Well, not so much.”
