Paddington Bear

A Bear Called Paddington, was first published on October 13, 1958. Paddington is from the deepest, darkest Peru—with his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat, and a love for marmalade—this friendly bear has become a beloved childhood, classic character.

Paddington even has his own website

Paddington and his creator Michael Bond

My daughter's Paddington project

My daughter and I have enjoyed reading about Paddington's adventures in this book, The Paddington Treasury. Classics such as Paddington are enjoyed by both young and old. My daughter loved hearing about Paddington's adventures:
  1. Paddington
  2. Paddington at the Palace
  3. Paddington at the Zoo
  4. Paddington in the Garden
  5. Paddington and the Marmalade Maze
  6. Paddington the Artist

And we cannot forget Paddington's favorite food, Marmalade!!!!

4 oranges
1 lemon
1 quart of juice and pulp
2 quarts water

Slice oranges and lemons is thinly as possible. Add the water and allow to stand covered in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
Cook over low heat until the rinds become tender. Cool and cut rinds into small pieces. Place in refrigerator and allow to stand another 24 hours.
Measure out fruit. To each quart of fruit add 1 quart of sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until marmalade thickens and the oranges are clear.
Ladle into hot sterilized jars and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

And for a bit of geography, find Peru on a world map!!
