Willa and the BearWilla and the Bear

Written and Illustrated by Philomena O’Neill

Publisher’s Synopsis: More than anything, Willa adores her ragdoll, Rosie, made just for her by Grandma. Together, through the seasons, they picnic, pick berries, and jump in piles of leaves. But one winter’s day, on a bumpy sleigh ride to Grandma’s birthday dinner, Rosie falls into the snow and disappears. Willa is inconsolable—and not even a new gift from Grandma helps. Then, mysteriously, Rosie reappears at Grandma’s door. Can Willa find a way to thank the special friend who returned her doll? With its charming folk-style illustrations, this beautiful picture book will warm the heart of every child who has ever had a favorite, beloved toy.

  • My granddaughter is reading so well now that it would be fun to win so she could read me a bedtime story! She lost her favorite stuffed bunny…Rabbi…but found it under the seat in the car where he had been hiding all the time.

  • I looked through the book, as much as possible, on Amazon. I am a kindergarten teacher and I would love to win this set for my own kinder-bear classroom. I love the concept of following Willa through the seasons and love having a book my little ones can make connections. We love Corduroy, but I think all of my littles would love a book to make comparisons to the adventures.

  • My daughter lost her stuffed animal called Fluffy Puppy at the mall when she was young. As a mom of 3 at the time, we retraced our steps and came up empty, so she had a meltdown. Her “puppy” was even on a leash and was a “lovey.” My kids are starting to have children of their own and read to them.

My daughter loves to sleep with a mermaid rag doll but she also takes it everywhere. One time we lost it and tore the whole house apart to find it.

  • I would like to win this for my granddaughter (one of whom lost her favorite stuffed animal on a vacation). Her parents rushed out for a replacement and tried to make amends but the original toy pet must have been discarded by hotel staff (at any rate, it was never seen again).

    November 2, 2017
  • One time when my daughter was younger she got sick in the middle of the night and let’s just say that my husband wanted to throw out her favorite stuffed animal because it got soiled. I took it upon myself to throw the stuffed animal in a pillowcase, tied it closed, and threw it in the washer on the cold/delicate cycle. After that it was spotless and our daughter was a happy little girl again. My husband actually couldn’t believe that the stuffed animal was not only cleaner, but that it didn’t fall apart. I still feel like a super mom for saving my daughter’s favorite stuffed animal.
