You are invited to a teddy bear picnic.
This pretty picnic basket is handmade in Peru.
Inside are beautiful wooden dishes from the homeland of my friend Veronica.
These are made from a jungle wood native to Peru called zapote.
Welcome friends, I am glad you came. Please enjoy this meal prepared for you!
Bartholomew brought sesame seeds to share.
Freddy Bear asks Sweetie Pie if she’d like a cup of tea.
Anyone need another napkin?
Rufus lives in Penny’s dollhouse, he is enjoying this furry gathering.
How about a pot of honey served with a cinnamon stick?
Woody says if nobody else wants the rest of the marmalade, he would be happy to finish it.
Bartholomew leans back with a very full tummy.
“Too full for dessert?” asks Penny.
“Oh no, no, I could fit in a wee bit more, I think!”
After the meal, the teddies gather to ask for a story.
“Please read about Paddington, the bear from Peru, who loves marmalade!”
Paddington gets in a big drippy mess after eating a sticky bun.
The Browns kindly invite him to their home to take a bath.
The children, Judy and Jonathan Brown, look forward to this new unusual guest from “Deepest, Darkest Peru,” who seems to bring interesting catastrophes wherever he goes.
This poster has such a sweet teddy bear poem, (but its too glossy for a good picture – sorry!)
Learn to listen like a Teddy Bear,
With ears open and mouth closed tight.
Learn to forgive like a Teddy Bear,
With heart open, not caring who is right.
Learn to love like a Teddy Bear,
With arms open, and imperfect eyesight.
