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.
