  1. Paddington Bear is always a favourite & we always love the bears in the Golidilock story our favourite ones with a twist are Anthony Browne’s Me and You & Leigh Hodgkinson’s Goldilocks and Just the One Bear

    • Yes, Paddington is a favourite from my childhood and we also like Goldilocks and Just the One Bear. I don’t know Me and You but I’m intrigued now that I’ve looked it up :)

  2. I wonder if you mean Michael Rosen’s We’re Going on a Bear-hunt? The bear in that always looks a bit sheepish to me – like he just wanted company and his intentions were mistaken. Have read it many, many times!

    • I think you’re right, the bear in Going on a Bear Hunt just wants somebody to play with :) The bear in Bear’s Day Out gets lost in the city, it’s a different story. We have borrowed it from the library a couple of times.

  3. We have the same favorite version of Teddy Bears’ Picnic! So sad that it’s out of print. :( There were a few new-to-me books on this list that I’ll be checking out. Thanks!

    • I love this version of The Teddy Bear’s Picnic, I have two copies (one big, one small) but I would love to be able to recommend that particular version. I’m still looking for one that I like as much :)
