Bear Spends the Night at the Library
Published on Saturday, July 31, 2010 - 4:54pm
This weekend was an exciting time for the Palisades Neighborhood Library as the first ever teddy bear spent the night at the library for the Teddy Bear Sleepover. Hobie Bear is a sandy haired stuffed animal originally from Rehoboth Beach. In his overnight adventure, he enjoyed several evening activites such as a pillow fight with the Wild Thing from the famous book, "Where The Wild Things Are", an evening snack of hot chocolate and ofcourse, he enjoyed reading a number of books. His owner was happy to have him back the next day though as they enjoyed a muffin breakfast and Hobie's owner read the letter he had written him about his sleepover adventures.
You can enjoy some teddy bear titles just like Hobie and his owner. The library is full of fun books about teddy bears and other stuffed animals. Here are just a couple of suggestions:
- Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems E Willems
- What Does My Teddy Bear Do All Night? by Bruno Hachler E Hachler
- Prince Peter and The Teddy Bear by David McKee E McKee
- Where's My Teddy? by Jex Alborough E Alborough
