Review by

I think as a mother I can particularly relate to this book. Most children lose a favorite toy at some point and has to deal with the loss. This book makes the transition from accepting a new Gideon a bit too easy. My own son grieved for weeks after a similar event but eventually found a new favorite on his own. He had a bear which he named flying bear and threw it out of the window on a busy street. As much as I wanted to go and retrieve it, it was just too dangerous. Replacing him was not an option, instead we decided that he flew off to a new home to make another child happy. Each child will handle things differently and for some this story offers the best solution. This book may be great for some children while it will totally miss the mark with others.
