Lola's Teddy Bear

By Marcia Goldman

A heartening message for all of us about acceptance and friendship.

Lola and her teddy bear do everything together from the time they wake up to when they go to bed. When Bear gets lost, Lola has to sleep without her cuddly friend. Despite her worries, she manages, waking up early to look for Bear, who has also spent the night alone. Bear is wet and dirty and ragged from her night outside, but Lola loves Bear even if she’s not perfect.

    “Lola is a lovable Yorkshire Terrier who is certified as a therapy dog for visits to classrooms, hospitals, and centers for elderly people. Through endearing closeup photographs of the pup during training and on the job, readers learn about her daily duties, as told from her point of view.”
    — School Library Journal

    “Bravo, Ms. Goldman! This book is a hit at our house. Such a sweet story about a little dog that has a big heart to help others.”
