Old Bear by Jane Hissey embodies pretty much everything Caroline loves most in books, namely talking stuffed animals who go on adventures.
I purchased this book when I was teaching first grade, long before I became a mother. Bur I 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!
