Synopsis

Lost. Found. by Marsha Diane Arnold

On a cold day, a bear loses his soft red scarf. The wind carries it *whoosh* to a couple of playful raccoons who find it and use it to play tug-o-war. Once they run off, the scarf is abandoned until a woodchuck finds it and decides it will make the perfect warm hat. It gets stuck on a tree branch only to be found and lost again by a fox, a mouse and s a couple of squirrels among others. When all the animals lay claim to the scarf, calamity ensues that can only be fixed by a bear, a little patience, and friendship in this nearly wordless, clever picture book.

Reviews

The way the animals make things right with the scarf's original owner adds sweetness to the mix, but it's the giggly impulsiveness of the forest's wildlife that provides the entertainment-the effect is half nature documentary, half Marx Brothers. Publishers Weekly, starred review The attention to detail and the expressions displayed on the animals faces are superb. A fun addition to any picture book collection. School Library Journal, starred review

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
