I Love You, Mister Bear is a really sweet story. A little girl named Sosha goes to a yard sale with her daddy and is excited to find a little bear. Her excitement is quickly jolted when she discovers he is worn out and has hole. She returns him to the basket she finds him in.

I read this over and over with my 2.5 year old. It was right on her level. The only part I didn't love was when the main character puts her teddy bear in the bath and dries her off quickly afterward. You just can't do that.

3 stories about mister bear. After we read this book, my boys carried around a bear for a few days, and wanted to sleep with a bear.
