Book Review: Paddington by Michael Bond

Book Review: Paddington by Michael Bond, illustrated by R.W. Alley

By Anne Angstadt

As a child, I loved bear stories. One of my favorite bears is Paddington. When I found this read along book on Hoopla, I decided to introduce my son to Paddington. This title is also available as an eBook on eRead Kids.

The Browns are waiting for their daughter Judy in London's Paddington Station when they discover a bear sitting alone on a suitcase. He has nowhere to go, so they take him home and name him Paddington. Paddington makes many mistakes as he adjusts his new family. “Things always happen to me. I'm that sort of bear,” he says. He gets covered in jam and floods the bathroom while taking a bath. The Browns always forgive him. Children will love Paddington's antics and learn that it's all right to make mistakes.

If you want to read more about Paddington's many adventures, be sure to explore the entire Paddington Bear series on Hoopla and EreadsKids. 

Borrow this charming classic today and fall in love with Paddington. This adorable bear will surely become one of your favorites too.
