It’s race day at the teddy track and David Ellwand’s much-loved vintage bears are out in a motley assortment of bangers, oil cans and spanners at the ready, for the annual Teddy Grand Prix. With plenty to spot in the images, a rolling rhyme and sounds to make, this is a traditional early board book to share over and over again with a very young child.
