Teddy Bear

C. J. Henck



My teddy bear was getting old

I showed him to my dad.

The threads that made his mouth were gone.

My teddy looked so sad.


His round dark eyes were crooked

His button nose hung down.

It made me cry to look at him,

My teddy, soft and brown.


A jagged hole showed stuffing

Poking through a long one side.

And I hugged him oh, so gently,

So it wouldn't get more wide.


When daddy showed my mommy,

She fixed him up like new.

His button nose was tight now,

His mouth was smiling, too.


His eyes were side by side again

Just like they used to be.

And when I sat and talked to him,

He could look right back at me.


She pushed the stuffing in again

Then sewed the hole with thread.

And when I went to sleep last night,

He was with me in my bed.


You know that someone loves you

By the little things they do.

At times like this, it means much more

Than saying, "I love you."

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear,
Torn and tattered.
You were my friend
When it really mattered.

Five Little Teddy Bears 

One Little Teddy Bear 

Playing Peek-A-Boo 

Along Comes Another Teddy, 

Now There Are Two. 

Two Little Teddy Bears

 Climbing Up A Tree

Along Comes Another Teddy,

 Now There Are Three. 

Three Little Teddy Bears 

Going To The Store 

Along Comes Another Teddy, 

Now There Are Four. 

Four Little Teddy Bears 

Playing With A Hive 

Along Comes Another Teddy, 

Now There Are Five. 

Five Little Teddy Bears 

Dancing In The Sun 

Along Comes A Bumble Bee,

Now There Are None.



Teddy Bear Poem

Judith Viorst


I threw away my Teddy Bear,

The one that lost his eye.

I threw him in the garbage pail

(I thought I heard him cry.)

I've had that little Teddy Bear

Since I was only two.

But I'm much bigger now and

I've better things to do

Then play with silly Teddy Bears

And so I said good-bye

And threw him in the garbage pail

(Who's crying~ he or I?)





My Teddy Bear

Marchette Chute


A Teddy Bear

Is a faithful friend.

You can pick him up at

either end.

His fur is the color

of breakfast toast

And he's always there

When you need him most.



The Best of Friends

Jeannie Hand-Stuart


There's nothing as nice

As a new Teddy Bear.

To tickle and cuddle

And take everywhere

To share all your secrets,

Your laughter and tears

To keep by your side

Through seasons and years.

There's nothing as nice

As a new Teddy Bear...

Except for an old one

With memories to share.


If Teddy Bears Ruled The World

If teddy bears ruled the world,
Oh my, what a wonderful place.
Everyone would be happy.
There would be a smile on every face.

We would picnic every Sunday
At our favorite old oak tree.
We would sing and dance and prance about,
Just playing joyfully.

We would all be nice to each other
And always lend a hand.
Ready with a bear hug,
We would always understand.

We would all be happy when something nice
Happened for one of our friends
And our friendships would last forever.
Nothing would cause them to end.

We would be kind to everyone,
Not just those in our own home,
But to everyone throughout our world,
Wherever we may roam.

Yes, if teddy bears ruled the world,
What a wonderful life this would be.
Our hearts would always be happy
As we danced by the old oak tree.
