The Lovereading4Kids comment

Joan G. Robinson’s based her classic stories, about the very everyday things that might happen to a teddy bear, on her daughter’s bear and the experiences she had, or might have had, with him. The result is some of the most-loved stories about a little girl and her ver special teddy bear. Teddy Robinson has many endearing characteristics. In particular, he is very wise – and sings some very sweet songs! In her delightful foreword, Deborah Sheppard, the original owner of Teddy Robinson and Joan G Robinson’s daughter, writes delightfully about how her mother came to write the stories for her and, in particular, how she was the first reader of every Teddy Robinson story.

One of a range of Macmillan Classics, beautifully produced hardback editions of some of the best-loved stories from the past. Each has a introduction by another author who, in their turn, have been influenced by the great writers of these books.


The Teddy Robinson Storybook: Macmillan Classics Edition by Joan G. Robinson

A friendly, free-and-easy bear, A cosy, jolly, teasy bear Is always welcome everywhere. Fair and furry, fat and free, That's the kind of bear to be. Like Me! Join Teddy Robinson as he has a birthday party, goes to hospital and plays at the seaside. He's sometimes rather shy and sometimes a bit of a show-off - but with his love of rhymes and his great imagination, Teddy Robinson is the best friend any child could have.
