Teddy Bear mischief at Johnsonville Library!

Teddy Bears had more fun than a picnic when they got to have a sleepover at the Johnsonville Library last Friday night.

Parents of the teddy bears enjoyed a fun night of teddy bear adventures and then left their teddies to enjoy a night on their own in the library.

As you can see from the photos our teddy bears got up to lots of mischief and mayhem. Watching TumbleBooks, playing with the lego blocks, reading books, parachute jumping and oh no – playing with the photocopier.

Make sure you keep an eye on your own teddy bear – you never know what they get up to!

FACT: Did you know that “Teddy Bears’ Picnic” is a song consisting of a melody by U.S. American composer John Walter Bratton, written in 1907, and lyrics added by Irish songwriter Jimmy Kennedy in 1932. To this day, it remains a popular children’s song, having been recorded by numerous artists over the decades.

On the day, you can also call into the Central Library and take out some amazing picture books about teddy bears.
