The Only Bear For Me Picture Book

A fun book about a child's best friend - the teddy bear



A charming hardback picture book all about the special relationship between a child and their teddy bear.

Familiar playmates for most children, teddy bears are seen as warm, friendly, tolerant, accepting and compassionate friends. So, it’s no wonder that children love them, often having a favourite teddy bear. Delightfully illustrated, The Only Bear For Me embraces this powerful and emotive symbol of childhood with a fantastical rhyming story.

On arriving home one day, the child is visited by bears from all over the world, Polar bears, Brown bears, Grizzly bears and more. However, despite the excitement of this wonderful adventure, there’s only one bear that is soft and comforting, easily held and ever so precious. Which one is it?

With space for a handwritten personal message in the front, The Only Bear For Me makes a wonderful gift.

Guide age range: 0-5 years.

Made with paper & love, from you to me.

Why we love it

Super cute bear illustrations and a lovely rhyming story make this a great picture book for any child who loves their teddy. We love the messiness of the book and the strength of feeling the child has for their bear.
