My friend bear is story about Eddy and a bear who feel lonely and sad as they don’t have any friends that they can talk to and spend time with. They talk to their teddies but unfortunately the teddies don’t talk back so they get very lonely. Eddy sees that the bear is upset because he does not have any friends and he has no one to talk to. Eddy pretends to be the bear and tells him not to be upset and that he can talk to him if he wants to. The bear thinks that his teddy is talking which in real...more
‘My friend Bear’ by Jez Alborough is a great text to read to all as it entails themes of friendship and loneliness. The story consists of two main characters, one being a little boy named Eddy who owns a teddy called Freddy. Eddy is lonely and wishes he has someone to talk to as his teddy bear is just a toy who never replies. The other character is ‘Bear’ who is equally upset due to his lack of friends. Both characters come across each other in the middle of the woods and at first are quite scar...more
I read this with Pre-K when we were talking about friendship. I loved this book! It was a last-minute pick and it worked out great.

A very cute book about a bear and a boy who befriend each other. It's written in rhyme. It's good for phonological awareness and print awareness. I'd recommend it for ages 1-5.
Another "I think I enjoyed this more than the kid" book. Very cute and beautifully illustrated book.
Sarah Jackson

This is a cute, rhyming story that is a good book for parents or teachers to read aloud to young children. The illustrations are adorable and colorful and the narrative has a sing-song rhythm that is soothing. We enjoyed reading this book aloud together at bedtime.
We celebrate Teddy Bear Day at our school where students and teachers bring their favorite bears to school. I read this to my kindergarteners and they always enjoy this silly rhyming story about a little boy, a big bear and their teddy bears.

Eddie and his teddy named Freddie meet a bear and his teddy in the woods. Eddie and the bear make friends and they are not as lonely as they used to be. This is a really cute story about friendship. I think that kids would love it.
This is the best of all Friend Bear books... the words flow so nicely and the story is truly heartwarming. We have given this book to all our fiends. Our number one book!!!
Another Bear book by Jez Alborough. Eddie and the bear become friends in this one. Just as fun and cute as the other books in this series.
This is a book that rhymes. I'm not a huge fan of books that rhyme. That said I did enjoy this book a bit. The illustrations are so colorful.

I read it last year in gr.6. We had to go (the whole gr.6) to a kindergarden and read to them.
The books is really sweet!
I tried very hard to do different voices for the each of the characters, which the kids thought were really silly.
Rhyming text tells the story of Eddie & Teddy, who meet a big bear in the woods and become fast friends.
I think I like the bear books better than the duck books. There's a little more story to these.
Soooo cute!! Highly recommend for kids of all ages. The whole series is awesome!!
This is the sequel to "Where's My Teddy?" but doesn't have its charm or originality.
