"As told by Teddy, a stuffed bear tenderly made by Grandma for her new baby granddaughter, this is a tale of comfort, companionship, and unconditional love... Soft pencil and pastel -illustrations gently enhance this quiet work and show the changes coming to Teddy's world... This book is a generous addition to works relating to family, love, and new sibling arrivals. A patient and well-paced story of love, friendship, loyalty, and change. Young children with their own comfort objects will easily relate to Teddy." --School Library Journal"Presented in straightforward prose, Nott's simple story about the unconditional love of a stuffed animal will provide reassurance for anyone outgrowing a comfort object. Kazemi's illustrations are tenderly rendered in pencil and soft, smudgy pastel and rely on a mix of panels and spreads; these cozy scenes will hold the attention of even the youngest readers... Comforting as hugging a beloved stuffed animal." --Kirkus Reviews"In this book told from a stuffed bear's point of view, ... the illustrations have an appropriately dreamlike quality... Particularly helpful to families helping older children adapt to the arrival of a sibling." --Booklist★ "This lovely story with enchanting art is about a beloved stuffed animal, Teddy, and his family. The wordless first few pages show Grandma making a stuffed bear, hold[ing] him close and whisper[ing] in his ear. The bear is animated with love, and the first-person narration begins. What a sweet beginning! ... The art gives the story almost a fairy tale feel, the rubbed pastel textures making the child and even Teddy look ethereal. Bright patches of color accentuate important images, showing what is beloved to Teddy. The author plays with the structure of sentences related to the art, and uses the pause between pages to build suspense or humor. The poetic language, gorgeous pencil and pastel art, and the sweet love between the child and the stuffed animal makes this a precious story. Librarians and readers should put this on the top of your 'to read' piles. Recommended for ages 3-7, especially those who have a special stuffie or a new sibling on the way." --Stephanie Tournas, Robbins Library (Arlington, MA), Youth Services Book Review, STARRED REVIEW
