More About Jerry Garcia, Bruce Whatley & David Grisman
Jerry Garcia and David Grisman met at a bluegrass show in 1964 and collaborated on a variety of projects, including their 1973 band Old and In the Way. Jerry spent over thirty years writing and playing guitar with the Grateful Dead, while David revolutionized the mandolin with his own brand of acoustic music called "dawg" (a nickname Jerry gave him), which he continues to perform with his quintet. In 1990 they formed the Garcia/Grisman band and subsequently made new recordings, including the 1993 release Not for Kids Only, on which the song "Jenny Jenkins" appears.

A beautiful story May 29, 2008
I remember my sister (who is a bit younger than I) listening to and reading the teddy bear's picnic and being jealous that she got to have a book by jerry (I was raised in a house with many songs to fill the air)! This is a wonderful song, and though it's been years since I've looked at the story book I still have the tape in my old tape player (and I'm 20!)
A Lovely Addition to your Child's life Sep 13, 2006
I learnt this song when I was a child and when I could share this with my kids - it was a joy. The illustrations are sweet & give the child something to search for on each page. The music is great & helps you learn the song yourself - so you can sing the song as a family.
The Teddy Bears' Picnic Board Book Aug 18, 2006
It's wonderful! You need to know the song to sing this song to your children or grandchildren.
Not for Kids Only Jun 17, 2006
Jerry and David have an amazing ability to create sensitive and intricate music and sing the most endearing words making a song lovely for all ages to enjoy. The children I care for love Teddy Bear picnic, as well as, the whole compilation of songs on "Not for Kids Only." The book/ tape combo is a wonderful gift for baby showers. Moms love the music too because its easy on the ears. Hats off to Jerry and David! They are masters at what they do!
The Teddy Bears' Picnic is charming May 22, 2000
Uncle Jerry & Uncle David unpack their guitar & banjo, sit down in front of the fire & make music. Your rug rats are in for a fine treat as these fine musicians accompany Uncle Bruce's picture story. Long, long ago when this editor was little the radio was her speaker to the world. There were programs for women & children dotted throughout the day on the BBC station & one in particular for the very young, in which could be heard such charming duets as Run Rabbit Run & The Teddy Bears' Picnic. I loved the mellow fellows who sang this charming song. I had not heard this melody in all those years when the book & attached audiotape caught my eye amid a chorus of bear calls & growls, demanding I listen. I never argue with Teddy Bears, especially when they're singing!...
