Another review of a 2018 picture book by Jean Matthew Hall.
It’s an ode to childhood imagination, and a tribute to loyalty and love.
Loved to Bits was written by Teresa Heapy and illustrated by Katie Cleminson. Roaring Brook Press brought it to life in 2018.
Loved to Bits is definitely proof that quiet picture books, gentle picture books are not a thing of the past. In fewer than 250 words Heapy tells the story of a young boy and his beloved Teddy bear.
Loved to Bits makes an excellent snuggle-up-and-hug-me read. And it will work great for a bedtime book, too.
I never had a Teddy bear as a child. Reading this lovely picture book makes me sorry that I didn’t.
