  • My 2 year old loved another Alborough book (WHERE'S MY TEDDY) and this (the sequel?) is also a very cute little book. This story is about a large bear in the woods with its own "bear sized" teddy and a little boy named Eddie with his own little teddy - named Freddie. Bear and his teddy and Eddy with Freddy are alone with no friends but find each other. This book isn't as fun as the WHERE'S MY TEDDY book, but my daughter likes the familiar faces and cadence of MY FRIEND BEAR. I would recommend getting the first book before this, but both are fairly equally fun.

  • Adorable story of an unlikely friendship. Beautiful illustrations and appropriate humor in book. Good use of rhyming and rhythm to promote literacy development. My children (1 and 3) both love it!

    I rely heavily on Amazon reviews when making purchases so I try to be as forthright and thorough as possible. If you found this review helpful, please indicate so below.

  • My twin granddaughters love "Hug" and I bought "Yes" and "Tall" too which have become stock favorites. Looking for more from the author, I read several Amazon reviews of the three Bear books by Jez Alborough and wondered if they would be too advanced for the girls (20months) but went ahead and bought them. They love them! They love Eddie, his teddy, Freddie and the sad lonely bear who has nobody to play with. How much they understand, I confess I have no idea but they bring My Friend Bear and the two other books about Eddie to me several times a day. They give me a chance to ham it up with silly voices and the girls drink it up.

    Kudos to the author and a request to keep the stories coming. We are waiting.

  • We already owned and loved Where's My Teddy, and this is a great companion book. In Where's My Teddy, Eddie runs home at the end of the book after being startled by the bear. In this book Eddie returns to the woods and becomes friends with the bear. Both books are easy to read aloud and will appeal to kids 18 months/2 years and up.

    I love to give books as a gift, and if you know a toddler who likes to read, this book along with Where's My Teddy would be a great present.

  • This is a nice final book in the 'Where's my teddy?' trio. In this, Eddie and the Bear meet again, but both reveal that they're lonely for friends and become fast and silly friends that day. It's a nice story that causes my 2.5 year old and me to giggle and use funny voices, and makes the bear even more relatable than the earlier books.

  • My kids had this book and loved it, so I bought it for my great niece's first birthday. Fun book to read when you change your voice as the characters would sound. I remember reading this to my son (who is now a college freshman) and laughing so hard we could barely finish the book. Wonderful memories for us!

  • Had no idea that the book is too small . Tried reading it to my kids and they're crowding me lol

  • Maybe it's just me, but I think this book is not that great. Like the other reviewer stated, the names change from Eddie and Freddie to Eddy and Freddy halfway through the book. I kept looking back to see if I had missed something.

    Also, we had previously bought the book Where's My Teddy and loved it, which is why I also purchased this book. The illustrations in that book were amazing, but in this book look a little off. Especially the character of Eddie--he just doesn't look as cute as in the previous book.

    I don't mean to be nitpicking, because I did like the story and rhyming, but the other details just bothered me.
