The Lovereading4Kids comment
In the beautiful setting of a bluebell wood one bear goes out to play, picnic basket in hand. On each page that follows he’s joined by another teddy bear friend ready to join in the fun until ten happy and hungry bears assemble for their picnic tea and cake. A jolly rhyming text encourages the reader or the read-to to count along and the bears, all favourites from David Ellwand’s vintage collection, are real characters! There’s a little dog hiding among the bluebells too for sharp little eyes to spot. A genuinely charming and unusual counting book. ~ Andrea Reece
Bluebell Bears A Counting Book by David Ellwand
The first in a brand new series of first board books, featuring the many well-loved toys in David Ellwand's vintage collection. Here, the intrepid teddies set out for a walk through the bluebell woods, collecting friends one by one as they go. Babies will love the friendly teddy faces and toddlers will enjoy learning to count to 10 as they follow the bears on the see-saw, the swings and playing hide and seek in the woods. There are plenty of visual jokes to amuse children and adults alike with the added challenge of trying to spot the little dog hiding in every picture.
