About this title


A child going to the hospital to have tonsils removed insists on bringing a worn but beloved stuffed animal instead of a newer one.

From Booklist:

Ages 3-6. A trip to the hospital for a tonsillectomy seems particularly daunting for a young boy faced with choosing just the right stuffed toy to accompany him. Papa suggests Benito, a soft white bunny; older brother, Daniel, recommends Coco, a brand-new teddy bear; but the boy wants to take an old blue elephant named Barney. Although his insides are kept intact with a Band-Aid, one eye has been replaced, and he smells like an old shoe, Barney has given comfort on many prior occasions, and, finally, everyone agrees that indeed Barney is best. Hale's brightly colored illustrations convey the close bonds that unite these urban apartment dwellers. Whether the boy is helping Mama at the Laundromat, camping out with Daniel, or being hugged by Papa, here is a child who is loved and respected by those around him. In addition to bibliotherapeutic uses, this will be appreciated by young listeners who have their own favorite well-worn toys. Kay Weisman
