The title of the book is: Me.
The author: Philip Waechter.
A quick flip revealed the right word to picture ratio for my wee one, and *plop* it went into the rapidly filling library bag.
A few days later, I fished it out of the pile and began reading. It's hard to get a good idea of the book from the first few pages. Is it all egotistical mantras? Is this bear full-of-himself or what? But the last few pages are so sweet, so lovely, so true that this fun little book is now on my all-time-favorites list. I want to buy a copy for everyone I really, truly love in the world.
So I have a new label for this kind of book - birth to death. Because I challenge anyone of any age to read about this fantastic bear and not fall in love. Or at least remember who it is in the world that you do love - and perhaps fall in love with them again.
This one might be worth another try at video posting!
