The Teddy Bears' Picnic

The Teddy Bears' Picnic

by Jimmy Kennedy Illustrated by Michael Hague, Alexandra Day
A favorite childhood song brought to life by one of America's favorite illustrators. ""If you go down to the woods today" "You're sure of a big surprise." "If you go down to the woods today" "You'd better go in disguise; " "For ev'ry Bear that ever there was" "Will gather there for certain, because" "Today's the day the Teddy Bears" "Have their picnic."" The Teddy Bears' Picnic has been sung and loved by English speaking children throughout the world ever since it was written. The intrigue conjured up by the teddy bears picnicking independently of their owners continues to capture the imaginations of children everywhere. Michael Hague's illustrations are simultaneously panoramic and detailed. Against the backdrop of country landscapes, lovable teddies of all shapes and descriptions picnic and play.
