A Bear Called Paddington

A Bear Called Paddington (Paddington book 1) - Michael Bond, Peggy Fortnum The first time I read this book, I was a 6y/o first grade GATE student in a 6th grade reading class. We did it as a play, I think. Paddington's story broke little me's heart, but I returned to it time and time again, because the idea of finding a family to just love you seemed so exceptional to me.I read it aloud to my best friend (along with the first three h2g2 books) while I was pregnant with my oldest, and his crib bedding was Paddington themed.I wish I still had all of that, I couldn't even believe I found it at the time.
