Teddy bears’ sleepover at Central Library

Last week some very special guests got to spend the night in Central Children’s Library. Here’s what they got up…

When the children arrived with their teddies, they all enjoyed a storytime together.Storytime

And then they went on a bear hunt… looking for a bear…One shiny nose, two big eyes…
Oh, no, it’s a …. bear!

Run, run, all the way home!

But not before there’s time for some bear crafts, making teddy bear bookmarks.
