The first in the TeddyTracks series, Teddy’s Day allows children to enter Teddy’s world, follow and make tracks with alongside his, documenting his explorations... and soon their own.
Teddy takes a break to think
Of color as he takes a drink
Of the Kool-aid Mom made.
It’s pink, I think I’ll take a drink.
Off to the fishing hole…
Bears never need a pole.
Swoop in swift on a wish
To scoop up a fish.
They are written to personalize the activities of Teddy on his adventure through everyday life and to inspire children to hear and see the poetic wonder of simple pleasures – whether they are about hard times or moments of joy.
Teddy senses the world around him through a poetic voice and somewhat surrealistic, dreamlike artwork, looking at life and the world with new eyes. Teddy (as a Teddy bear) presents a theme that is both enduring and very personal for all children. Tested and timeless, this bear lets children interact with him in his world and promotes a positive worldview while embracing their innate sense of exploration and wonder.

Looking for a fun rhyming bedtime book for your children?
Then your child will love this beautiful story of a teddy bear’s adventures through a day of exploration and adventure told by Peter Liptak.
A world traveler and avid cyclist, Peter Liptak loves to say “WOO HOO!” and knows that the simple experiences in life hold the greatest adventures. He explored many interests at the University of Minnesota, from the wonders of Astronomy and Anthropology to philosophy and poetics, before graduating with BA in English Literature and History. Peter learned new skills as a preschool teacher, waiter, dance instructor and massage therapist while in school, and has worked as an actor, teacher, and writer since. Living in Korea, he studied Korean History, receiving his Master’s from Yonsei University in Seoul and helps Korean children visit summer camp in the US to explore a new culture for themselves.
Discovering the beauty of each moment and always open to new possibilities, he began his bicycle adventures early, often venturing out with his sister on rickety yellow bikes meant for adults. Such memories inspired him to venture ever further, journeying through Europe and across Asia, finding adventure on two wheels and even testing his mettle in Ironman triathlons and desert races.
