Edith And Little Bear Lend A Hand by Dare Wright

Mr. Bear thinks that he needs to take Edith ("The Lonely Doll") and Little Bear away from their beloved New York City to escape the dirty air and streets. But Edith and Little Bear don't want to move to the country, so they take up the cause of cleaning up the city. They march in front of City Hall and write a letter to the Mayor. The Mayor sends a letter back, urging Edith and Little Bear to do a little bit every day to clean up the city themselves, and to keep watch for any polluters. Edith and Little Bear follow the Mayor's advice, and they begin to clean up their neighborhood themselves. Mr. Bear, seeing how much Edith and Little Bear care for their home and their streets, happily decides they can remain in their home in the city.

About the Author

Dare Wright (1914-2001) was a fashion model and photographer based in New York City. In 1957, she used her childhood doll Edith and two teddy bears as the subjects of her first book The Lonely Doll. The combination of mesmerizing black and white photographs and simple, eloquent text made the book an immediate success and earned it a place on The New York Times Best Seller list along with Dare Wright's next Lonely Doll book, Holiday For Edith And The Bears. Edith And Little Bear Lend A Hand is the eighth book in the series featuring Edith, Little Bear and Mr. Bear. Originally published in 1972, it was photographed in Dare's apartment, on the streets of New York City and on the Hudson River where she captured her bittersweet image of the World Trade Center towers before they'd been completed. All of the photographs in this book have been reproduced from Dare Wright's original negatives that she developed in the tiny darkroom of her apartment.
