I remember reading Wolstencroft The Bear by Karen Lewis which I felt was a lovely tale and one that played an impact on me. Although it's quite long and may be more suitable to read during independent/guided reading or nap tap, it will still interest children and perhaps teach them something. The story revolves around Wolstencroft, a bear who is rather upset and feels unwanted as he watches other stuffed animals go home with children or their parents and questions why no one takes him. He become...more

The Adventures of Wolstencroft the Bear is a great book telling the story about a bear in a Christmas store. The bear’s name is Wolstencroft and he never gets bought. In the store he makes friends but they encourage him to change name so that it would be easier for little kids to pronounce his name. He decides to change his name but is saddened until he changes it back and is bought by a little boy. He then realizes that he is loved for who he is. I thought this was a wonderful book with a stron...more

The Adventures of Wolstencroft the Bear is a book about a bear in a Christmas store named Wolstencroft. Wolstencroft never gets bought. He makes friends with some bunnies that tell him he needs to change his name so children can say it. He changes his name to Wolly. Changing his name makes his sad so he changes his name back and gets bought by a boy that loves him for he who his. I loved this book! He teaches a great lesson about being yourself. I would use it in a second grade classroom.

Wolstencroft the Bear is a story about a little bear who was left on the top shelf of a toy store never to be sold, or so he thought. He even wants to change his name because he is convinced that is the reason noone wants him. This book is good for students who feel the same about their name. It is also a good book for those who feel lonely. They can see that there will always be a place for them. It can also be used to teach patience.

I read the version of this children's book where the stuffed bear sits on a store shelf for years because his name is too long that no one wants to buy him. It makes him very sad, but eventually a young boy with the same name comes in and buys him because they both have the same long name. It was a really sweet story that takes place during the holiday season so it was perfect to read right now.

This story is about a bear who sits in a toy store waiting to be bought. He becomes frustrated, because nobody wants him. He spends time with his new friend trying to figure out why nobody wants him.
