Project 64: Tumbleweed

Paddington was one of my favorite stories to read
to my first grade students so I was thrilled to receive him
from my granddaughter Celeste.
My Paddington was purchased at Paddington Station
when she was studying at the London Center in 2007.
Pride moves me to relate that she worked three jobs
in order to have that opportunity to study abroad.

What a wonderful young lady she must be! I'll have to check out some Paddington books from our library to read to Wyatt in honor of her!

We had the same idea. I also need a stuffed animal.

I love Paddington! I sent a Paddington to my grand-daughter a short time ago. She's too young for the stories yet, but I couldn't resist. :)

My sister had a mould of Paddington, and made a bear for my son. I have not thought of using it for my students. It's too precious in case one of the student breaks it.

Does this ever bring back memories! I remember Paddington from my English upbringing, but here in America nobody's ever heard of him.

I love Paddington and he's perfect for tumbleweed...which I'm still sort of looking for.
Appreciate the nice comments you've left of late. Just finished my college course so hope to be more faithful about getting out to read posts and comment.
