The Teddy Bears’ Picnic Illustrated by Bruce Whatley

The teddy bears picnicThis book was a lucky find in a community library. We initially borrowed the board book because Samantha loves bears, and the book was beautifully illustrated with many bears on every page. The bears are shown initially walking to the woods, then having their fun and games in the woods, and finally going home. The pictures in the book are drawn in such a way that they are continuous with the page before, thus giving the impression of a very very long picture!

I later discovered that ‘The Teddy Bears’ Picnic’ is actually an old song that was first recorded in 1932. You can pick up the song quite easily from YouTube. This book is now one of our regular reads!
