Children's LiteratureThree friends—Harry, a stuffed elephant; Ted, a stuffed bear; and Lulu, a stuffed lamb—are playing near Harry's house. They climb to the top of a hill where they watch the clouds floating in the sky and birds swooping and soaring in the air. The wind flaps Harry's ears, tickles Ted's fur and makes Lulu feel frisky. Lulu and Ted tumble all the way down the hill to the bottom, but Harry hesitates. His ears flop over his eyes and he does not feel right and he certainly does not feel light but then his friends run back up the hill and help Harry and they all fly down the hill to tumble in the grass. This is a mild but sweet and encouraging tale for very young readers, who will appreciate the pastel illustrations of the three stuffed animals. 2005, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 to 5.
