Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"Like its predecessors Where's My Teddy? and It's the Bear!, this oversize book about Eddie and his teddy bear, Freddy, will endear itself to pint-size preschoolers," wrote PW. Ages 3-up. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
The sequel to Where's My Teddy?, Jez Alborough's My Friend Bear (1998) returns as a board book. Though the type may be small in this new incarnation, PW said this tale about a sad boy named Eddie and his chance encounter with a great big bear "will endear itself to pint-size preschoolers."
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Eddie and the giant bear are both lonesome. Their only companions are their teddy bears. While out for a walk Eddie sees a giant teddy. A sudden noise sends him scurrying to hide behind teddy. When he hears the bear's lament about being friendless, he pretends to talk for teddy. Of course he is found out, but the good news is that he and bear begin a friendship. Life takes an upward turn, because now neither is lonely anymore-"That's what having friends is for." A pleasant companion to Where's My Teddy? and It's the Bear?

This was a gift to my daughter for her 4th birthday and we have read it over and over again. It is heartwarming and fun. I absolutely recommend it!
