  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from January 27, 2014
    This story will undoubtedly be celebrated for its lessons on honesty and responsibility, but that’s not giving Yoon (Penguin in Love) enough credit: it’s also a thoughtful, flawlessly executed exploration of theory of mind and emotional intelligence. A bear cub finds an abandoned toy stuffed rabbit, which promptly finds its way into his heart (“Bear thought it was the most special thing he had ever seen”). As much as Bear wants to keep the bunny, he also empathizes with the “bunny’s family” (they “must be so worried”) and the cuddly but impassive bunny itself. It’s these feelings, rather than an obligatory or on-high dictate of “right and wrong,” that propel Bear on a comprehensive search for bunny’s owner—an impressive show of competence, thoroughness, and agency that also enables Bear to endure when the owner comes forward. Yoon’s simple, subtly textured shapes; bright colors; and eloquent, economic language invite readers to be part of the story without dictating how they should feel, making the happy ending all the more touching and satisfying. Ages 3–6. Agent: Jamie Weiss Chilton, Andrea Brown Literary Agency.

    Bear finds a wonderful toy. Bear clearly loves the toy bunny that he has found sitting up against a tree in the forest, but he wants to help it return to its home. With a wagon full of fliers and the bunny secure in Bear's backpack, he festoons the trees with posters and checks out a bulletin board filled with lost and found objects (some of which will bring a chuckle to adult readers). Alas, he returns home still worried about bunny. The following day, they happily play together and ride Bear's tricycle. Into the cozy little picture steps Moose, who immediately recognizes his bunny, named Floppy. Bear has a tear in his eye as he watches Moose and Floppy hug. But Moose, wearing a tie, is clearly grown and knows that it is time to share and that Bear will take very good care of his Floppy. Yoon's story is sweet without being sentimental. She uses digitized artwork in saturated colors to create a lovely little world for her animals. They are outlined in strong black lines and stand out against the yellows, blues, greens and oranges of the background. She also uses space to great effect, allowing readers to feel the emotional tug of the story. A winning tale about finding new friends. (Picture book. 3-6)

    PreS-Gr 1-Bear finds a lost toy bunny in the forest and adores it instantly. Bravely, he does the right thing by putting up "Found" notices and searching diligently for the bunny's owner. Just when he thinks no one will claim it, Moose recognizes his lost lovey. Bear prepares for a tearful parting, but Moose has outgrown the toy (as indicated by his necktie) and gladly passes it on to an appreciative Bear. "Floppy was home, safe and FOUND!" Bear is such a good guy: he cares about others' feelings, he's proactive, he's even responsible enough to wear a helmet while riding a tricycle. It's impossible not to like him. The consistently inanimate portrayal of Floppy emphasizes the intensity of Bear's feelings and imagination. The simplicity of the understated text lets the emotion shine through. Thick-lined, opaque digital paintings offer dramatic perspectives alternating with straightforward scenes. Humorous touches include a bulletin board of clever LOST flyers and a little bird who follows Bear around, clearly interested in Floppy's fate. A touching, satisfying story that models healthy love between people and their toys.-Heidi Estrin, Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL
