i have a specific memory of me turning six years old: we were not rich, so my gifts were only a few but very carefully selected, special gifts from my parents. on my sixth birthday in addition to several coloring books and crayons, i received a collection of pooh books, including "now we are six".
i was six: how weird!
i read these poems over and over and still cherish them to this day!
happy 85th birthday, pooh bear!
