Teddies and tots let loose in the woods
IF YOU went into the woods on Tuesday you were in for a big surprise.
Because Tuesday was the day the teddy bears were having a picnic.
The woods were in Bicentennial Park in Cannonvale and the teddy bears were joined by more than 30 children and their parents who took advantage of the early literacy program run by the Whitsunday Regional Council.
First 5 Forever project officer Rosalyn Hearn was at the picnic and said the turnout exceeded her expectations.
“We had all mixed ages and we had a couple of dads which is great to see,” she said.
Ms Hearn said parents were very receptive to the information being shared during the story time and baby bounce programs run by the library.
The programs will return to the Cannonvale Library after the school holidays.
