Synopsis: What if toys could actually feel? Would they be happy or sad? Would they be able to love? Button Nose the Sad Little Bear is the story of a much loved little bear and the little girl who will never give up on finding him again.
Button Nose watches with sadness as all the other toys in the toy store find homes. Finally a mommy picks Button Nose and brings him home to her little girl. Button Nose and the little girl share an instant bond and Button Nose is finally happy. But, as all children do, the little girl grew up and Button Nose found himself shuffled from home to home. Just when Button Nose loses all hope a miracle happens.
Button Nose The Sad Little Bear is such a sweet story and it is sure to touch the heart of any child or adult who ever had a special toy they loved. For me, the best part of the story is that it is based on actually events in the author's life. I like that she included real photos that coincided with the illustrations. Button Nose The Sad Little Bear is a creative and beautiful story that is sure to become a fast favorite with little ones.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
