In Teddy Bear Land, the bears are hoping to find the One True Bear that will speak to the heart of Damian. He is a troubled little boy who is very hard on his toys. The Bear Force is looking for the bear with the right stuffing. Darcy Brewster volunteers. At first, Damian is very hard on Darcy, but he speaks to Damian's heart time and time again until....Well, I won't give that away. The ending will bring tears to your eyes especially if you are the parent of sons.

My fourteen year old son read this first and absolutely loved it. He said it is one of his favorites of all the children's books that end up in our home. So there is definitely a message that speaks to different ages here. The bear's message to all who read is, "Do you have the right stuffing?"

This book was different in its approach than many of the children's books I have read and that is part of its appeal. The illustrations are beautiful and colorful. There are a couple of difficult scenes where the bear gets damaged, but I feel those scenes are soothed by the repair that happens afterward. I don't know that the littlest ones would understand the very end, but they can still appreciate the rest of the book. This book is advertized for ages 3-6, but I think 3-8 would be appropriate because what boy of 8 doesn't want to believe he has the right stuffing?
