Milne, & others; a song; & a lively illustrated history of the world's favourite toy

Photos illustrate the historical segments, & illustrations from the original books accompany the stories & poems


A handsomely designed treasury

Beautifully written & illustrated. Wonderful to read to toddlers & younger children & a treat for older children (of all ages). The Teddy Roosevelt story is worth the whole book

This was a great book. It tells you everything from the history of teddy bears to little bear legends. I love teddy bears & found this book very interesting

It's a great read-aloud book to my son. We loved the story about the bear on the Titanic
