Positioned in his favourite reading spot, this small child is engrossed in his favourite book about bears. His faithful companion, Ted, is also carefully seated beside him, raised up on cushions so he too can see the story about his friends the bears. There is nothing quite like sharing your favourite story with your favourite bear.

What is the title of this painting ' Interes-Ted' referring to though? Is it referring to the child who is so obviously interested in his book about Teddy bears, or is it referring to his well loved friend Ted? Maybe Ted is even raising his arm to ask a question about his furry friends in the book or is he just leaning on the cushion as he listens... I guess we will never know :)

Encouraging a love of reading in children is one of the greatest gifts, apart from your love, that you can give to a child. Not only does it open up a world of information and knowledge to them but it can also help develop their imaginations and encourage more creativity. Sharing a book can be a lot of fun too.



  1. Lovely painting it turned out so well,and it has a story as well, which I always like in any piece of art.
