LoveReading View on This is the Bear
Fun to read aloud and fun as a very first book to read alone, This Is the Bear is tragic story of what happens to a much-loved teddy bear after heâ€™s pushed into the dustbin by the dog. Itâ€™s a saga of a search through dustbins and even the dump itself before the triumphant recovery. Told in simple rhyming verse, itâ€™s a treat on its own but the accompanying CD which includes the three sequels as â€˜performedâ€™ by Bill Oddie and Imelda Staunton among others, makes it irresistible.
