Now feel the bear's body it is rather round as he is a chubby little teddy bear and looks very squashy. Do you have a soft teddy bear? Feel how this bear has rough fur instead of smooth skin. Now go down the bear's legs and to his feet with the smooth, pink pads at the bottom. When you have finished feeling the bear turn over the page. On both sides there are lots of little pictures of the smiling bear sitting next to the picnic box. It is brightly coloured and full of food and we can see a juicy, red apple sticking out of the top. Turn over the page. On the right is our next feely picture. It is a picture of the dog, our bear's friend.
