The legendary Jerry Garcia joins with David Grisman to create a down-home, Dixieland version of this classic song. A cassette recording is packaged in the back of this new picture book version of everyone's favorite picnic in the woods. Best-selling artist Bruce Whatley has created a rollicking collection of singing, dancing and picnicking teddy bears with a slight 60's twist. So come along--it's time for the Teddy Bears' Picnic!

Jerry Garcia and David Grisman met at a bluegrass show in 1964 and collaborated on a variety of projects, including their 1973 band Old and In the Way. Jerry spent over thirty years writing and playing guitar with the Grateful Dead, while David revolutionized the mandolin with his own brand of acoustic music called "dawg" (a nickname Jerry gave him), which he continues to perform with his quintet. In 1990 they formed the Garcia/Grisman band and subsequently made new recordings, including the 1993 release Not for Kids Only, on which the song "Jenny Jenkins" appears.From School Library Journal:
PreS. The large, immediate illustrations and bold text will attract young audiences to this printed version of a popular song. However, while the bears resemble stuffed toys, they are life-size and lifeless. The illustrations are flat and two dimensional. Their static nature diminishes the charm of the song and is at odds with the magical premise of the tale. The attached cassette is good reason to buy this package. Its jaunty folk rhythms and banjo picking are easy to listen to over and over again. Playing the tape while looking at the book helps liven up the reading experience. The bears do fun things on this picnic, but they don't appear to be having a good time.?Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
