Teddy's Day by Peter Liptak

Here's a chance for your little one to follow Teddy around during his day and see how he amuses himself...

Little Bear Books and Net Galley let me download a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can find a copy at your local bookstore.

This is a simple tale with illustrations that look a bit like Mr. Biannicleger used crayon to do them.  The teddy bear's adventures are a lot like any young one's normal day.  Find something fun to do and keep busy all day.  The illustrations are low key and colorful.  Teddy reminds me of a little boy. Why not share a day in the life of a teddy bear with the little one in your life?  The text flows well and Teddy is cute.

The part I like best about this book is that it so simply done, your child might be inspired to create his own book.  I wrote a book about a mouse when I was in grade school.  It was great fun and my Mom helped me with illustrations.  You can read Teddy's book and then create your child's own masterpiece with them.  It'd make a great keepsake.  (I still have that story, fifty years later...)

Happy reading.

I love books about Teddy's and so did kids. Was a little worried when you said they let you download an ebook. Kids need to touch and hold so am glad this book will be in holdable form. Love the follow up idea you gave as well. Were you a preschool teacher in another life?!

No, just a babysitter. I always look for ways to get young ones interested in books. Reading is important in life.

You can write a book too.
About what you ask?
Well, if you're up to the task...
whatever makes you say Woo Hoo!
