Realistic Fiction Texts

Use the following three books to show how a Canadian soldier's WWI experiences led to Christopher Robin meeting Winnipeg (Winnie) the bear in The London Zoo.  His father told him stories about the bear and wrote them down, becoming A.A. Milne's classic The World of Pooh.  Later, Disney took those stories and adapted them into an animated stories called Winnie the Pooh.  But, it all started with a real bear back in 1919!
