Oct20_TravelBear

Anna got this bear from her German uncle and aunt last Christmas. He came in a small travel suitcase. She liked the suitcase, but not the bear – she is rather indifferent to stuffed animals. He was sitting next to a pile of other stuffed animals in our bedroom until our papa took him on a trip to Germany. Now travel bear sends Anna emails every day and tells her what papa has been up to. There are also pictures of him (travel bear, that is) with friends and family. Anna loves these emails, and I have a hunch that a Travel Bear will be a lot more popular once he returns home.

Oh that is so creative! :) It reminds me of 'Adventure Bear' where daycares send home a teddy bear each week with one child and then they record their adventures together in the journal to share with the class. A simple teddy bear becomes so much more fascinating!

That is so nice. It would be neat to put all of the letters together in a book.

This is a wonderful idea! I agree with Christy that the letters would make a fun book.

I agree with Christy make a Travel Bear scrapbook of all the pictures and emails!

That is so cute! It's like your own personal version of Flat Stanley.
