Summary

Summary

A heartwarming story about a lost Teddy and the magical person who returns him to his owner on a very special night.

Teddy is catapulted into a winter adventure when he's accidentally bumped off the window ledge he'd been sitting on guarding the house for Lily and Mum while they are out Christmas shopping. Snowboarding, skating, and making a snowman--Teddy experiences it all. But soon Teddy starts to feel wet...and cold...and very far from Lily.

Just when he's feeling most glum, a kind hand wearing a bright red glove bundles Teddy into a present-filled sled and delivers Teddy back to Lily with a twinkle and a glow. It's been a very special Christmas eve for Teddy!

Booklist Review

PreS-K. Teddy, who got lost in the park and found his way home in Home before Dark (2001), has a similar adventure in this British import. Left on an outdoor window ledge for safekeeping, Teddy finds himself somewhat improbably catapulted into the air and lands in a snowbank. Soon he's enjoying a little impromptu snowboarding, «snowbear» building, and ice sliding. When he feels cold and lost, the little teddy bear gladly accepts a sleigh ride home, presumably from Santa (or Father Christmas). Subtle shading and sometimes-glowing colors heighten the appeal of the ink drawings. The simple story, childlike character, and appealing artwork make this picture book a natural for young children, who will yearn to play in the snow like Teddy. Those looking for a seasonal read-aloud that de-emphasizes the holiday hoopla will find this an engaging choice. Carolyn Phelan.


Publisher's Weekly Review

In Teddy's Snowy Day, Ian Beck recasts Teddy and Lily, the toy bear and girl separated and reunited in Home Before Dark, in another tale of bear loses girl (and gets back to her again). This time Teddy is aided by a stranger; the illustrations show only the mysterious helper's red mittens, white cuffs and red sleeves and the interior of his well-laden sleigh.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-When Teddy is put on the outside window ledge to watch his young owner play in the snow, he gets shut out. At first he has fun as he plops into a snowdrift, uses a plank as a snowboard, and slides on some ice. As time passes, though, the toy bear realizes that he's alone and lost. Just as he's feeling at his lowest, kindly, red-mittened hands reach down, put him in a sleigh laden with red-wrapped packages tied with red bows, and deliver him back to his home. The old-fashioned, framed illustrations reinforce Teddy's moods and experiences. The story incorporates a little bit of everything, including adventure, independence, home, friendship, and fantasy, even if it is a bit hokey.-Jessica Snow, Boston Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
