A delightful story with an important lesson about sharing joy through selfless giving Feb 4, 2007
Peef and the Baby Sister is a children's picturebook about a young boy, a multicolored teddy bear, and the boy's baby sister - as told from the teddy bear's point of view! Peef the teddy bear is used to having fun with the boy, his Best Friend; when the baby sister enters their lives, they enjoy making her laugh with their magic tricks and shows. But when baby sister doesn't feel well due to the stress of teething, Peef and his Best Friend find a way the one way to make her feel better - by giving her Peef to have, hold, and keep. A delightful story with an important lesson about sharing joy through selfless giving, Peef and the Baby Sister is highly recommended.
My favorite one yet. Jan 16, 2007
First, last, and always, Tom Hegg is a teacher. Here, he revisits the lesson he first taught in PEEF The Christmas Bear; loving someone, or something, means letting go so potential is fulfilled. Funny, poignant, and beautifully true to all that PEEF has become, this is a story that perhaps provides a missing link in the story of the multi-colored Christmas bear.
Peef and the Baby Sister Jan 10, 2007
It's a children's book that I love. I ordered it because I wanted a copy - just to have. I believe this is the book that I had a mix-up over. The sending company was absolutely wonderful about it and actually gave me a complete refund and had me keep the incorrect book that they had sent to me. I would do business again with them in a heart beat.
A must read! Oct 13, 2006
The PEEF series of books is one of my all-time favorites. The stories have a strong message, yet are entertaining and the illustrations are simply delicious.
PEEF and the Baby Sister is about loving, sharing and sacrifice. It's a happy but poignant story (especially if you've read the series).
PEEF and his Best Friend have lived a childhood of exciting adventures. And as the Best Friend has grown, his friendship with PEEF has matured. When the Best Friend's sister arrived, the duo makes her laugh with all their antics. But when Baby Sister isn't feeling well (she's teething) nothing PEEF and Best Friend do can make her happy.
PEEF and Best Friend discuss the situation and make a sacrifice that brings joy to Baby Sister.
Sometimes the biggest and best gifts cost nothing in terms of dollars, but cost a great deal in loving sacrifice. PEEF and Best Friend are true heroes who love Baby Sister enough to give her a gift that will give her great joy.
Armchair Interviews says: Another great addition to the PEEF series.
