If you go down to the woods today it’s Teddy Bears’ Picnic Day!

Sadly my favourite version of The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is out of print. It was given to me when I was doing my teaching degree and I have never found a copy that I like quite as much! If you have a favourite edition of ‘The Teddy Bears’ Picnic’ please leave a link in the comments 🙂

We have lots of bears on our bookshelf that we can picnic with. So watch out if you go down to the woods today…

You may want to take a copy of the best Bear Tracker with you. It could be very helpful in showing you where to find any bears…

Maybe you can cycle through the woods to find your perfect picnic spot? If you need lessons Frank and Bert’s experience in Frank and Bert: The One Where Bert Learns to Ride a Bike could be very helpful.

If you’re injured on your picnic hopefully you’ll find a kind stranger to help you. Don’t let first impressions stop you asking for help like Fox’s experience in Anyone But Bear.

And after you’ve finished eating maybe you could take a leaf out of The Bear and her Book and curl up for a good read.

We recommend you read A Bear Named Bjorn‘s adventures. It’s amazing what some bears get up to in the woods!

    What a lovely bear themed round-up! The Teddy Bears’ Picnic fills me full of nostalgia! I remember us having a teddy bears’ picnic back at infants school many moons ago! 🙂

      I absolutely loved doing teddy bear’s picnic days when I was a reception teacher. We measured our bears, made them hats, made honey sandwiches then had a picnic with a teddy bear story time. I’m not sure who had more fun – me or the children!

      There are so many book bears that I love. A large percentage of our picture books include bear characters 🙂
