A compassionate tale of friends lost and found.

""The Teddy Bear had a good home . . . a warm, cozy place to sleep . . . many friends . . . and someone who loved him.""

The little boy and his teddy bear were always together. Every night, when the little boy went to sleep, his teddy bear was right there next to him. When the little boy went on a trip, his teddy bear went too-until one terrible day when the teddy bear was left behind . . .

This is the wonderful story of a friend who is lost and found and lost and found again, and of a little boy who begins to understand the meaning of compassion.
