{Review & Giveaway} Emily Lim books (Part 2)

Emily Lim books

As promised, here’s the second part of my Emily Lim books review and giveaway.

In Bunny finds the right stuff, Bunny is a floppy soft toy who is short on stuffing. He’s upset about his lack of stuffing and tries to stuff himself with various items with no success. Eventually, when Bunny tries to reach for the clouds, Bunny’s friends – Dinosaur, Kangaroo and Grizzly – step in to help him by giving him a little of their stuffing and it is then they discover the stuffย that friendship is made of.

I love the clever play on words –

and my kids love the beautiful illustrations –

Can you guess what he stuffed himself with? (This is my girl’s favourite page!)

And my blueberry fanatic will only read this page ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes, he has preferences and makes them known!

Just Teddy is about a lonely teddy bear who ‘often wondered if there were other toys just like him’. One evening, he decides to take a walk around the factory to find out. In his quest, he tries ways and means to try to fit in with other toys but he never manages to do so.

My panda-lover’s favourite page!

Eventually a little girl falls in love with him, takes him home, cleans him up and discovers that he’s not just teddy, but a ‘one-of-a-kind’ bear which is of ‘great value’ (and if she sells him, she can buy many other teddies).

She doesn’t, of course.

Just Teddy is a touching story of how a bear struggles to fit in, only to discover that he’s great the way he is, and there’ll be someone who’ll love him for who he is – definitely a story we would like to share with the kids!

Time for the giveaway! Two fans get to receive an autographed book each. You can win by simply leaving a comment on this blog post (tell me which book you prefer – I’ll try my best to give you your preferred book, but no promises!) and remembering to click ‘I Commented’ in the Rafflecopter widget to qualify. The rest of the options are optional, but would render you more chances to win!

  12. Jessie Lee says:

    Both are great stories, I like bunny’s friends helping him to lift up, and I like the part that little girl will not sell teddy to have many more other teddies, both have great morale for our kids to learn. My girl loves to read, and at age 3 she is already an independent reader, she would love to have the “just teddy” as she has caught on the trend of hugging her teddy bear to sleep after reading in many books that children are tugged in bed with teddies.

  13. Cynthia says:

    I would like to win Bunny finds the right stuff so that I can reinforce on the point about friendship.
