A Bear To Share

A Bear to Share

Business leader, actor, and Baby2Baby co-CEOs Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein with ambassador Jessica Alba deliver the important message of giving back from an early age through this tender and delightful story. The book opens with a note from the authors about their organization, Baby2Baby. 

Tiana, a child with brown skin and two dark braids, has loved her teddy bear Bach for so long and so much that he is missing an eye and has stuffing coming out of his neck. When her mother purchases a new teddy to take Bach’s place Tiana is hesitant to replace her much-loved friend. She confides in her redheaded, bespectacled pal Timothy about her dilemma—only to discover that “toys aren’t a pri-o-ri-ty” in Timothy’s cash-strapped household. She discusses the matter with her mother, who lovingly explains that every family is not the same and that some families are not able to afford the same things as others.

Tiana is sad for her friend and decides that she wants Timothy to have her new bear, and her mother agrees.

Empathetic, playful illustrations by Alicia Más bring this adorable story to life.

A Bear to Share is a sweet read-aloud about friendship, kindness, and equity.
