When Eddie goes to school, Teddy finds a way to go too
Eddie has always done everything with his teddy, so when he has to go to school without Teddy he is very upset. But there is so much to do there, that he is soon fine. Teddy, however, is also upset and nothing that Mum does will cheer him up. They were both very relieved when it was time to pick up Eddie from school. And so they find a way for Teddy to go with Eddie after all – in everything he does.
PreSchool-Grade 1-- Eddie and his bear, Teddy, have known each other since they were both in diapers, and they do everything together. So when Eddie must go to "Big School" without Teddy, both are very upset. Mom spends a rough day trying to comfort a distraught Teddy and finally allows him to accompany Eddie to school the following day. The concluding picture shows a grownup Eddie and Teddy, both wearing business suits, going to work together. While the slight text (a sentence or less on each page) makes this a quick read, suitable for the very young, the concepts and occasional visual humor suggest an older audience. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations are adequate, but the consistently vacant expressions on both boy and bear (staring eyes, fixed smile) are irritating. Teddy looks very much like an inanimate toy bear; that he is apparently real to both Eddie and his mother may be confusing to some readers. While short enough to sustain the attention of most readers, this is a marginal purchase at best.
