Reading books is a wonderful thing to do with young children, especially if the book is about a teddy bear. Richard O’Neil’s book Rag n’ Bone Bear will inspire children to use their imagination and invent new adventures with their teddy bears. Children will add their patch to the ‘every patch tells the story’ teddy bear. Children, please bring your favourite teddy bear to meet Cartwright Hall’s bears, and let’s play!
