Teddy Bear Stories

Teddy bear stories have been popular since the early teddy bear craze at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Everyone must remember being told a teddy bear story when they were young and loving the cosy and safe feelings that surrounded them. There simply something about a bear that is both charming, sometimes a little frightening but always comforting that makes bear stories still poplar today. 

There are still many new children's stories and books being produced to this day which feature our cuddly furry friend, some designed to teach lessons and some simply for fun.

Famous Teddy Bears In Literature

Roosevelt Bears

The Roosevelt Bears

Perhaps to earliest bears to become well known in Literature are the Roosevelt Bears. They first appeared around 1905 in American newspapers and were the tales and verse of two bears, Teddy-G and Teddy-B. 

The stories were written by a Seymour Eaton and they soon became a firm favourite amongst old and new alike. 

Four books were published which contained the exploits of the two bears. These were: 

  • The Roosevelt bears - their Travels and Adventures
  • More about the Roosevelt bears
  • The Roosevelt bears abroad
  • The bear detectives

Smaller books were also published but these were taken from the original books. Copies of any of these books are extremely rare and sought after collector's items.
