About the Book

Jim-Bob is a lovable, adventurous teddy bear who travels all over the world. He decided to set off on an adventure one Saturday morning after he read a new book about different places in the world.

Inspired by his book and everything he has learned about the world from his teachers at school, Jim-Bob sets off on an adventure to explore the world—all seven continents—and learn more about how other bears live. On his travels, Jim-Bob meets many interesting new friends who each teach him something new and exciting about this wonderful world we all share.

In a tale based on the true story of the world’s best traveled teddy bear, Jim-Bob learns the essentials of friendship and acceptance from Gus, Sam, Paul, Amara, Baldo, Ping, and Kody. Join him in his world adventure as he learns new ways to dig, climb, swim, explore, run, eat, and sleep from bears and animals of distant lands.

Jim-Bob’s adventures encourage travel, exploration, and appreciation of diversity.
