"I was looking for a book about teddy bears to go along with an upcoming teddy bear picnic I am hosting for my preschooler and his friends. I looked at the other books of the same title available on Amazon (ones that have been on the market longer than this one) and wasn't crazy about their illustrations or their text.

If you are familiar with the original lyrics of the old song (originally from the early 1900s) you know they include the verse:
"If you go down to the woods today
You'd better not go alone.
It's lovely down in the woods today
But safer to stay at home."
I was glad to see that verse was not included in this particular retelling as I always found it to be a bit creepy.

I wouldn't have minded if they had left in the parts that say:

"Beneath the trees where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Cause that's the way the teddy bears have their picnic."

And

"See them gaily gad about
They love to play and shout;
They never have any cares"

as I find those lines quite sweet :-)

The illustrations are all happy and sweet...smiling kids in bear costumes, bears flying kites and airplanes, driving cars, picnicking on fruits and sweets, playing tic-tac-toe, etc.

At the end of the book are the lyrics as well as a QR Code linking to an MP3 of the song so you can hear it sung along with the book. There is a glossary and guided reading activities as well. (See pictures attached...sorry about the glare!)

I am very pleased with Cantata Learning song books (this is my first one) and I will probably be buying more!

Highly recommended!
