    One thought on “The Teddy Bears' Picnic”

    1. One of the gems I found at the Mill Valley Library Sale over the weekend. I love this book! As the adorable old gentleman at the volunteer table was ringing up my stack of books (25-cents, 25-cents, 25-cents--what a bargain!) he raised his eyebrow at this one. "Now, this one is $3.00," he said kindly. I grinned and said, "I know." ;-) Rosenshantz (my very-favorite children's music group as a kid!) did a version of "Teddy Bear's Picnic" that I loved. I can hear the entire song as I read through t [...]

    2. Now, usually I think that adding books for very young children is cheating. You don't get credit for reading a Sandra Boynton board book, even if Moo Baa La La La is pure genius (it is, by the way). But I break my own rule for this one--I can still picture every page and sing the song. Buy it.

    3. Little gem of a board book. I did not notice if it was originally published as a regular picture book but it should be because the illustrations are so detailed and intimate it would be nice to see them on a larger scale. They truly are lovely, some of them even a bit haunting. Fun to read/sing for baby storytime, with a bear friend or puppet.

    4. Any version of this book will due but this one is in a fairly large format so works well with a group. It helps if you know the tune and can sing the book.Children were invited to bring their favorite plush toy to story time. At the end of the story / song they were invited to stand up with their toy and show every one. Depending on how many children brought animals it works for the performer to ask everyone with a white teddy (or whatever color) to stand up or hold their toy up. Then clap for t [...]

    5. The Teddy Bears' Picnic is a picture book, intended for nursery or primary readers. In this book teddy bears gather together to go to a picnic. They participate in many fun picnic activities and eventually get so tired they need to go home and rest.I rated this book four stars because I read it a few years ago and I can remember really enjoying it. I enjoyed it more the second time I read it. The illustrations in the book make you want to participate in the different activities and have a picnic [...]

    6. Genre: Picture bookReading level: Early to transitional, ages 5-9Topics and themes: This story chronicles a day when all the bears come out into the woods for a picnic. It demonstrates a sense of community.Curricular Use: Good for introducing text and music in a read aloud.Social: The story shows how a community of bears an come together and enjoy the day together. It talks about, and shows in the pictures, the bears doing picnic activities together.Literary elements: This book goes along with t [...]

    7. Loving the song decades before the book overlaid its own images makes it hard to assess the later book/song combo. The book's picnic was much more lavish than the one in my imagination, more of a Teddy Bear extended-family reunion. With a great quantity of balloons (as well as bears).I think the song version I heard growing up would have been the Bing Crosby one, not sure who the background vocalists would have been. Now I'm going to have to look and see who did the song included in the book--bu [...]

    8. I'm so excited I found this book! I remember reading it YEARS ago, and LOVING it! This is one I definitely want to purchase! Several artists have illustrated Jimmy's classic & familiar song, "The Teddy Bear's Picnic," but the illustrations by Michael Hague are timeless, magical and THE BEST! His interpretation of the song truely makes this an absolute TREASURE and FAVORITE!

    9. I am a teddy bear collector and have always loved the song "The Teddy Bears' Picnic." Jimmy Kennedy publishes the song in book form; however, Michael Hague's illustrations are amazing. They really add to the story and add to the smiles. I've been reading children's books lately because I am planning to write a children's book after I finish my poetry book.

    10. I saw this on my book shelf last night and remembered I needed to enter this book in. Truly one of my favorite books of all time. I loved Teddy Bears, I love to sing, and I love picnics. My copy has a record in the back of the song and I would listen to it on my Michael Jackson Thriller record player. Ahose were the days.

    11. The Teddy Bears Picnic by Jimmy Kennedy is a great story. This book is about a group of bears that gather for a picnic. On their picnic they partake I many activites which soon leaves them restless. After becoming tired the bears decide to go home and rest. I would read this book to my class to promote social skills and friendliness among their peers.

    12. It was a great book for children to explore. This book is suitable for ages four and up. It has a lesson learned at the end of the story and it teaches children about family being together and enjoying picnics. Most children love teddy bears so i think it would be a great read.

    13. If you go down in the woods today Teddy’s Bears’ Picnic is a repetitive story about a teddy bear picnic. In the story there is one little boy who is dressed up like a teddy bear, but the bears don't notice. I would recommend this as a bed time story.

    14. This was one of my favorite books as a child. My copy came with a small vinyl record of the song and I'd play it over and over. I also had a teddy bear with a wind up key that played the tune. Good memories!

    15. We sing this book and my kids and I love it. It has great pictures and it's just a fun book to read/sing!

    16. This is Jimmy Kennedy's classic "Teddy Bear's Picnic" song. While this is a great interpretation, I prefer the version illustrated by Michael Hague - that one gets 5 stars from me!

    17. I like this because it tells the story of a family of bears who went off on a picnic The bears were good friends and loved to play together. Everything was going fine until a surprise occured.

    18. I really liked this book. Woods was not that into it! But I'm hoping when he's older we can check it out again from the library because I liked it lol!!!

    19. Beautifully detailed illustrations show teddy bears gathering in the woods for a picnic until night falls and their little human mommies and daddies take them home to bed.

    20. This book scares me a little. What happens if the bears find out that there are children dressed as teddy bears at their picnic?!
