The Lovereading4Kids commentFun 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.
This is the Bear by Sarah HayesThe boy, the bear and the dog are the best of friends. But one day the bear gets lost and has to be searched for high and low.
