Button Nose the Sad Little Bear is the touching story of a toy bear who is very sad until he is adopted by a sweet young girl who loves him dearly.
Gina LoBiondo tells the tale of how this sad little bear finds the perfect home and then loses it as the child grows older. He bounces around through the years, never feeling as wanted and loved as he did when he lived with Little Girl. Will they ever find each other again?
Beautiful illustrations that look like they are drawn with colored pencils, along with real photographs of the bear and children, add charm to this story.
The way the bear was loved, lost, and then loved again reminded me a lot of the movie Toy Story.
Part of me wanted the characters to have names instead of generic titles like Sad Bear or Little Girl. However, as I got to the end and found out Little Girl's true name, I understood why she wasn't named earlier.
The photographs at the end made the story even more endearing. They were a wonderful addition to the book!
Any child or adult who has had a favorite toy will be touched by this book!
