KIRKUS REVIEW

 An expansive setting (11''x12'') for a sentimental favorite, a song (``written over forty years ago'') describing a teddy bears' woodland outing without their ``Mummies and Daddies,'' who come at the end to ``take them home to bed.'' Hague provides a lush setting, mostly in teddy-bear brown and gold, with muscular Rackham trees, fairies hiding under toadstools and among roots, dozens of winsome bears feasting, blowing bubbles, swimming, etc., and one toddler (disguised in a bear-suit and clutching his own large teddy) as observer; in the end, these last two snuggle down amid fairy dust after the other bears have gone home. Appealing; too bad the music wasn't included. (Picture book. 3-7)
