Book for BBC Children in Need Charity

Book for BBC Children in Need Charity

Dorset based artist, Maya Victoria Linde, has self-published a new childrens book called "Little Bear's Winter" to help raise funds for the annual BBC Children in Need charity appeal. The official book launch and signing is on Tuesday 26 October and will take place at the Teddy Bear Museum in Dorchester.

Mrs Linde is an author and illustrator mainly specialising in childrens books. "Little Bear's Winter", published to benefit BBC Children in Need, is a little storybook for children telling about real friendship and selflessness.

One of the main characters, Little Bunny, finds himself in the tricky situation of explaining what the winter looks like to his best friend Little Bear who has never seen winter because, as you know, bears sleep all through the winter season. It is an enchanting story for children and is beautifully illustrated throughout by the author herself.

Children in Need is renowned for its work in helping to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Last year marked a fantastic achievement for the charity. Despite the recent economic climate and banking crisis Children in Need raised the staggering amount of ?39 million in 2009, which is already starting to make a huge difference to the lives of needy children. Pudsey is hoping that this year will again set a new fundraising record. However, this will only happen if everyone joins the effort. The statistics say that during the last 20 years more than half a billion pounds have been raised through the appeal.

The book signing and launch for "Little Bear's Winter" will start at 11.00 on Tuesday 26 October. Pudsey, the famous mascot of BBC Children in Need has promised to attend and greet the teddy bear enthusiasts, visitors and school children making the most of their midterm holiday. The Teddy Bear museum is a captivating family museum that displays teddy bears from the last hundred years in the setting of an Edwardian style house which is inhabited by human size teddy bears. This event marks the beginning of a period of a few busy weeks in Dorset, with more and more individuals and companies joining forces to raise money for children.

As well as being available from the Teddy Bear Museum shop, a copy of "Little Bear's Winter" can be obtained from the official Teddy Bear Museum website. The museum is situated in the centre of Dorchester and is open daily.

The Dorset Teddy Bear Museum is Dorchester's family museum, with Edward Bear and his family of people-sized bears living in the Teddy Bear House. One of the established toy museums in Great Britain.
