Today is Teddy Bears Picnic Day so we have put together a list of some of our favourite stories about bears. Unfortunately our favourite picture book version of The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is no longer available to buy new and we would love to hear your suggestions for a newer version.
There are so many wonderful fictional bears, it’s really hard to choose favourites. Many of the stories on are list are classics and include bears that have stood the test of time with stories that have been read and enjoyed by more than one generation. So here, in no particular order as we love all these stories, are our favourite bear books.
