Me and my teddy bear
Favourite teddies have been a good prompt for writing and drawing in the hospital recently, both with children and with adults who have long memories. Many of the teddies come into hospital with patients who are happy to talk or write about where their cuddly friend came from as well as the most exciting place he or she has been and what she gets up to when left alone. Six year olds Eliza and Lilley made these drawings of their respective purple duck, Angeline, and ragdoll, Sophie, while they waited for surgery in the Day Case Unit.
