I Lost My Bear

by Jules Feiffer

Published by Morrow, 1998
40 pages
ISBN: 0-688-15148-5

Ages 3 - 7

A humorous, exaggerated story illustrated in Feiffer's distinctive cartoon style has at its core the psychological reality of a young child's obsession with finding a lost toy before bedtime. When her parents are unable to help her search for her bear, a little girl tries the solution offered by her older sister who suggests that she throw another toy, watch where it lands, and then see if her lost bear is anywhere nearby. Although this method doesn't help her find her bear, she does find many other things she's lost recently and each thing she finds distracts her--for awhile. A truly funny and original story about an age-old problem. CCBC categories: Picture Books for Younger Children.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
