Chester Bear, Where Are You? – Peter Eyvindson

Chester Bear is one of those all important features of a child’s life, the night-time-safety-sleep-until-morning stuffed toy.  My children both have one, for my son, it’s his blanket, for my daughter, her bee toy.  I don’t know how old a child is before they give up on the safety toy.  Chester Bear is a needed toy for Kyle in the story, “Chester Bear, Where are you?”.  This familiar experience is lovingly told by Peter Eyvindson and expertly illustrated by Wendy Wolsak-Frith.  The illustration help guide the reader into Kyle’s memories and experience as he searches for his bear.
