|"These collaborators have created another charmingly illustrated poetry book for
children and Teddy Bear lovers of all ages." "The trio
(author Olive Evans, illustrator Pat Woolley and musician/ composer Jim Furmston)
have learned to cherish the child within because it lifts us all".

|"Adventures with the Thrift Store Bears" is a wonderful addition to children's literature
and literacy. In this book, the second in the Thrift Store Bears
series, children are warmly welcomed to enjoy the seasons as experienced by this
gang of Thrift Store Bears. Love, friendship, life lessons abound as you read
or listen to Olive Evans' jaunty rhymes. Patricia Woolley's charming illustrations
enhance the adventures of Duffy, Brighton Daisy, Big Bear, Freddy Mouse and
all the others at the old redwood house by the sea."
"A unique feature
of both books is an enclosed CD featuring Olive Evans reading the stories
with music and sound effects composed and performed by well-known musician, Jim
Dr. Annette Tessier, Professor Emerita

|"I absolutely love this new book, "Adventures with the Thrift Store Bears" and the
CD containing the narrated poems with music and sound effects accompaniment.
The colored illustrations are beautiful, the poetry delightful and the music
and reading on the CD are both first class. This book should be in children's
homes and every public and elementary school library."
