Fans of classic toy stories like Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo, and Toys Go Out by Emily Jenkins will love this illustrated novel by Newbery Medalist Cynthia Voigt.

Winner of a Parents Choice Silver Honor Award

Teddy is a thinking kind of bear. Of all his friends, he does the most wondering. He lives with a ragtag group of lost toys--a very hungry snake, an elephant who likes to bake, two charmingly silly pigs, and a reclusive penguin--and they all bump along happily together. But their peaceful world gets shaken up when new toys arrive--first a rabbit, who is not as soft and floppy as he looks, and then a beautiful doll with royal ambitions. Will the newcomers learn to fit into the community? Or will the community be forever changed by them? As Teddy the philosopher would answer: Yes.

Cynthia Voigt's charming tale of community and compromise comes alive in the adorable pictures from Paola Zakimi. Fully illustrated and lovingly designed, this book would make a terrific gift or family read-aloud.

A sweet story of a "disabled" stuffed toy bear. Young kids will delight in his adventures and thoughts. Adults can help kids make the connection of accepting others despite differences and having friends. A thoughtful book that is tailor made for little ones.
