Bears holiday 1968

This is a book I had as a small kid, published in 1968, and its probably the first book I had that had surfing in. Having said that its not exactly surfing, its just stacking it into a big clump of rocks ; enough to put a small grom off for life. Papa bear was a bit of a know it all - you can tell by his bathing suit - and he spends the holiday trying to teach his son about beach safety, with predictably disasterous results.


  1. this is amazing, even better when reading out aloud and doing bear voices!

  2. now that's something I'd like to hear ! Glad you enjoyed it
