Edwin Lampert is the founder of The Brun Bear Foundation and author of the two children’s books starring two bears, Brunhilfer and Brunfin – The Flood and Trouble at the Zoo.

Sadly, Edwin’s Dad had Brain Cancer. The radiotherapy his father went through resulted in his father believing that the family lived with two kindly bears called Brunhilfer and Brunfin.

Edwin’s Dad – who has good insight into his condition – asked his son to look after his bears for him “when the time came.”

When his Dad died in 2014 Edwin set about creating a charitable foundation as a way of honouring his father’s memory and values as well as supporting causes he had held dear: medical research, community projects in the London Boroughs of Bromley and Lewisham, and animal welfare – with special emphasis on bears.

In this interview, we discuss the two books written by Edwin, the types of messages they convey and how they can be used in Early Years settings to support children.
