In this collection we have a wonderful gathering of teddy bear friends from bears in books to bears on TV, including Sooty, Pudesey and Paddington. Plus some bears from history with interesting stories to share. Children will enjoy hearing about their adventures, accompanied by music and sounds, poetry and book readings. This fun resource book may support subjects in the National Curriculum and is great as an educational resource in class, home-schooling, homework-help, project work and independent learning and reading for pleasure.

Listen to an audio clip

Harry was so good that he was given a BBC Television show all of his own. And can you guess who he had with him? Yes, indeed, it was his co-star Sooty. But how did he get his name? Well, as I said, the puppet was plain yellow, so when Harry decided to show him on television, the story goes he covered the puppet's ears and nose with soot, so that he would show up better on people's black and white TV screens!
Why, you may wonder, is he called a glove puppet? Well a glove puppet is a small figure of a person or animal with a cloth or fur body and hollow head. It's made so that you can put your hand inside the body, which has an opening at the bottom, just as if you were putting on a glove. Your fingers and thumb go into the head and arms, and when you move your hand and fingers it looks like the little puppet is moving.

Teddy Bears icnic This pack is lovely. I used it with tactile teddies and puppet sets which my pupil enjoyed. Getting her to use the raised images is a good way to practice tactile skills. Janine
