Today another children’s book review.. teddy bears are very special toys and loved by many children… sometimes into adulthood. Barty Barton: The Bear That Was Loved Too Much by Sue Wickstead.
About the book
‘What happens when you outgrow your teddy bear? Will you let it go?Barty was a special teddy bear. He was soft, cuddly and always made you smile.All the loving cuddles had flattened him over time, his nose bent to one side and his paws needed repairing.But he was too full of memories to be thrown away. Thomas had loved Barty but now he was grown up and going to be a daddy himself. Would he want Barty for his new baby?
My review for the book February 5th 2022
A lovely story about how even when old and worn out there is still love to be given and received. Very hopeful for those of us of a certain age, who like Barty Barton the bear, are showing signs of wear and tear.
Barty and his fellow stuffed toys have been rather neglected after their young owner grows up and leaves home to start a family of his own.
Luckily his mother comes to the rescue and Barty and his collection of friends go through several rejuvenating processes. They are a delight to read about, offering useful suggestions to those who have favourite worn toys that might enjoy being pampered, and passed along to younger members of the family.
