I Love this book. I bought it for my daughter, but it was really for me. Now I read it to my son, and never fail to tear up by the end. Jodie said my family Teddy Bears picnics reminded her of this book. Find it to read, kids or no kids.
Speaking of garbage, dumps and rescuing, this Owl clock has been fashioned from my freshly rescued lino, saved from ending up at our local garbage dump.
