    1. Looking for a tender, heartwarming picture book? Look no further, author/illustrator David McPhail has one just for you, THE TEDDY BEAR! Sure to please but also make you tear up. Published by Henry Holt & Company!#PB #love #lettinggo


    2. Suggested to me by colleagues. I have to put it on my "can't read aloud" list as it made me cry. I had to have my 7 year old read the last 5 pages or so. To be fair, I am pregnant and maybe can get through it when less hormonal.



    3. A unique and interesting story with a wonderful moral about giving to those less fortunate. You really get to see a young boy "grow up" here.


    4. I discovered this book at a library sale, and am so glad I did. The tale of a lost Teddy Bear shows a look at a homeless man that will be a lovely story to start conversations about being homeless. Through a bit of confusion, a young boy's bear is left at a restaurant and ends up in the trash. It's found by a homeless man, who learns to love it as much as the little boy. The ending will bring a tear and a smile. McPhail's art always pleases. It's a soft story with softly rendered illustrations.


    5. This is a tender story about a little boy and his teddy bear. He took his teddy bear with him everywhere until one day the teddy got left behind. By the time it was noticed the bear had been tossed into a garbage bin. Later a homeless man found the bear and loved it as much as the little boy did. Lovely illustrations.



    6. This is a story that most children will be able to identify with if they have a most favourite toy or blankie that they love literally to pieces.  The little boy in the story has his most cherished teddy beside him at all times.  They are inseparable, and even if the family goes away on a trip, teddy goes along too.  On one such trip the family stops in a diner to refuel and sadly the little boy's teddy is accidentally left behind and then tossed out in the dumpster.  "He lay squashed in a [...]


    7. The Teddy Bear by David McPhail is a heartfelt story about a boy who loses his teddy bear. It is the child's favorite toy and he is saddened by his loss. Time passes though and he slowly moves on. Meanwhile the teddy bear has come into the ownership of a homeless man and the bear is enjoying his adventures because he is still loved. Months pass and eventually the bear and the boy are reunited. The child and his parents have almost left the park when the hear the wails of the homeless man. The bo [...]


    8. This book seriously almost made me cry! It starts out with a little boy losing his teddy bear that he absolutely adored. The teddy bear was found in the trash by a homeless man and he took the bear everywhere he went, even to bed in a trash can. (The picture of this broke my heart.) One day, the little boy came across the teddy bear sitting on a bench by itself and he grabbed it and started to take it with him until he heard the homeless man yell out that he was missing his bear. The little boy [...]


    9. This is a heartwarming story about a young boy looses his beloved teddy bear. Then the teddy ends up in the hands of a homeless man. After several years pass the boy sees the bear again and picks him up to take him home but when he hears the homeless man cry for his bear the young boy runs to return the bear to the man. I think this would be a great book for teaching young children about friendship, compassion and empathy. In the story, the young boy puts his needs aside to make the old man happ [...]


    10. So much of children's literature avoids reference to poverty and homelessness. The Teddy Bear acknowledges the reality of homelessness without being heavy-handed or judgmental. For children who live in urban settings (like the kiddo in the book) (and probably other contexts as well), the images of homelessness in the illustrations are likely to match their experiences -- homeless men or women living out their basic day-to-day lives in public spaces. The Teddy Bear is a beautiful model for young [...]


    11. My son has a teddy bear that he loves. He is five and still brings it with him every where. This story is about another little boy similar to my son. During one of his trips out of the house, he loses his teddy bear. The teddy bear ends up with a homeless man. Time goes by and the teddy bear and the boy are reunited again but upon seeing the sadness of the homeless man, the boy gives the bear back to him. I thought it was a sweet book. I think the message was lost on my son though but I liked it [...]


    12. This realistic fiction story exposes children to a different lifestyle while also being age appropriate. It includes a rich plot and presents a problem with a resolution. The illustrations correspond wonderfully to the text and add to the storyline. This story is developmentally appropriate for elementary-aged children and can be adapted to all grade level curriculums. It not only introduces children to a different lifestyle, but it also teaches understanding and sympathy as well.


    13. My family loves this story. It captures the attention of all three of my kids (3-9 years old) and has led to discussions of kindness and tolerance with the older boys. A sweet book with a kind message, we received it as a gift and it will probably be one of those books I save in our family book box for when my kids are grown.


    14. Emotional impact, rare is the book that makes Emerson cry. Story about a boy who loses his teddy bear to a homeless man. Then he finds his bear only to discover that the homeless man needs the bear more than he does.


    15. A heartwarming story about compassion and kindness that makes me teary eyed every time I read it aloud to my students. It is ideal for introducing poverty and homelessness as well as for teddy bear week.


    16. Grades PK-2This is the wonderful story of a friend who is lost and found and lost and found again, and of a little boy who begins to understand the meaning of compassion.An excellent book to read during story time.


    17. Found this on the storytime shelf. I was surprised to discover it was first published in 2002. My guess would have been the 1980s. Most contemporary books are not like this. Very good story about compassion.


    18. read this book! next time you are in the library or a bookstore. it brings tears to my eyes every time i read it, and has helped us talk to H about things that don't usually come up in our day to day lives but that are important for her to learn. also, the illustrations are beautiful.


    19. Great book. It is not often that homelessness is written into stories for children. Excellent book for teaching the true meaning of sharing and needs vs. wants.


    20. I didn't really like this book much. Why would a grown man want a teddy bear? If he saw the little boy with it, wouldn't he want him to have it? I would not use this book in my classroom





    21. A compassionate and humanitarian tale. Beautiful example of love and empathy. This is a must read for children up to age eight or, anyone for that matter. Lovely story.



    22. Really sweet story of loss, compassion and kindness. I was very touched by the little boy's generosity, it brought tears to my eyes to think that a little child could be so compassionate.



    23. This is a great book to use to talk to students about how there are people who go through bad things in their life. It is a very touching story.
