On Hannah's Bookshelf | Where's My Teddy?

This time Hannah has chosen “Where’s My Teddy?” by Jez Alborough.  I remember her Dad reading her this but what does she remember about it?
Read on to find out...

WHEN WAS I READING THIS BOOK - I’m not sure when I was read “Where’s My Teddy?” by Jez Alborough for the first time, although it was probably when I was really young and as I was growing up because I remember me and my brother have always liked it.

THE REASON I LOVE THIS BOOK - I love this book because I think it’s a bit different to other books for young kids. The story is really interesting especially as little Eddy doesn’t seem too scared in the woods without his mum. This setting of the story in the woods is like a fairy tale although the forest in this book doesn’t seem so scary or as dangerous but it’s still quite sinister and a great setting.

MY FAVOURITE PART IS… - My favourite part of this book is probably when the bear finally finds his teddy and the bear and Eddy both scream at each other and their teddies. I think it’s a great way to show their surprise and is funny because they say almost the same thing to each other. I also really like the rhyming of the story and the way the rhyme makes the story move along steadily as the reader reads it. Rhymes are great to read to little children as well to keep them interested and so they can hear the sounds.

LOVING THE ILLUSTRATIONS OR NOT - The illustrations in this book aren’t my favourite illustrations of a picture book but they are still great and really help to tell the story. The dark colours all help the forest to look dark and mysterious but when we meet the characters we know we shouldn’t be too scared. They are painted so the colours work really well and the crowd of tall thin trees help to make the woods look really enclosed and spooky.

WHO READ ME THIS BOOK - “Where’s My Teddy?” is my dad’s favourite picture book along with the rest of Jex Alborough’s books so it was one of the stories that my dad always used to read to me and my brother. It was different because mostly my mum read books with me and my brother but my dad reading this one was great too just in a different way.
