Old Bear – A Month of Cozy Books

Old Bear - A Month of Cozy Books 2

Post may contain affiliate links to materials I recommend. Read my full disclosure statement.

Old Bear by Jane Hissey embodies pretty much everything Caroline loves most in books, namely talking stuffed animals who go on adventures. I first purchased this book when I was teaching first grade and knew that Caroline would love it when I brought it out for her.

The animals realize that Old Bear has been gone a long time. He was packed away in the attic because he was quite worn and the children weren’t taking good care of him. Bramwell Brown, Duck, Little Bear and Rabbit decide that it is time to rescue Old Bear from the attic and bring him home. The book is full of their adventures as they try to help Old Bear.

The life-like illustrations are charming and cozy. It’s a sweet story of friendship, love and perseverance. Old Bear definitely belongs on your bookshelf!

This is part of my A Month of Cozy Books series!

  • I have an Old Bear like that. But my Old Bear won’t stay in the loft. He made that plain years ago, when my husband was working away. He came down from the loft and has never gone back. So all the other bears get to talk to him every day when we’re out. They’ve probably found out by now that I was just as batty before I met my husband. And just as much an arctophile then as I am now, too.

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder

“After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it.”

“They were cosy and comfortable in their little house made of logs, with the snow drifted around it and the wind crying because it could not get in by the fire.”
