I know this may be an easy answer for most of you, but I choose to sip tea with Teddy. Naturally, as the author of the forthcoming children’s picture book, Teddy Bear Tea I’m a tad partial, but hear me out.
Of course, I love Winnie-The-Pooh and all his lovable friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. The story and characters are beloved and classical, but everyone knows the story of Pooh Bear.
I’d like to meet some new friends and read about the fun they have in the woods. A Teddy Bear Tea in the middle of the forest with a group of adorable woodland animals sounds like a fun time. And if you’re a big hunny lover, I’m sure they’ll have some for you to stir into your tea!
On November 14, 1902, the beginnings of the Teddy Bear occurred when President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a Louisiana black bear while hunting in Mississippi. It didn’t take long for the incident to make national news and a series of imaginative events to unfold.
By November 16, political cartoonist, Clifford Berryman, got wind of it and satirized the episode in The Washington Post. Shortly after, Brooklyn candy shop owner, Morris Michtom, saw the picture and became inspired to create a stuffed bear that he named ‘Teddy’s Bear’ and dedicated to the president.
Upon receiving President Roosevelt’s permission to use his name for the toy, Michtom mass produced the bear and founded the Ideal Toy Company.
