Slightly odd story line, but a very cute book
Reviewed in the United States on December 4, 2018
I have been very impressed with the books in this series, which include "Found" and "Stormy Night." The stories are cute and the illustrations are very sweet, and in many cases quite clever (if you haven't, look at what the panda bear is eating for lunch in this one!).
The basic message of this book seems to be that you don't have to do everything by yourself, but the storyline has a rather odd way of illustrating that. Basically, Bear is feeling down on his first day of school because he misses Floppy (his beloved stuffed bunny), so his teacher helps him create an external pocket for his backpack so he can bring Floppy to school with him. It just seems an odd way of demonstrating that you can ask for help and rely on others. That said, it's a sweet story and a cute book, and my daughter loves reading it over and over, so I can't ask for more than that!
