Description - Beady Bear by Don Freeman
Upon its 1954 debut, the cuddly classic Beady Bear was praised by The New York Times as ""the kind of book small children will delight in."" Don Freeman, author of the acclaimed children's story Corduroy, recounts the whimsically illustrated tale of a wind-up toy who longs to live like a real bear. When Beady learns that bears are brave and live in caves, he resolves to give it a try - and discovers that being real is actually about loving and being loved.This longtime favourite is presented for the first time with its previously unpublished sequel, Beady's Pillow, another heartwarming charmer only recently discovered by the author's son. Beady's friend Thayer sets out to retrieve a pillow that the adventurous bear has lost, and when Thayer disappears into a cave and doesn't come out, Beady has a chance to prove his bravery.
