Review: The Teddy Bear Habit (Lost Treasures #3)

User Review  - Jennifer Kuchenbecker Thomas - Goodreads

Oy. I've never been more happy to be done reading a family chapter book. I'd never read this book, so it didn't hold fond childhood memories for me. Lots of on the cuff editing had to be done to make this palatable for our kiddos. They enjoyed it. Me...glad the teddy bear is dead. Read full review
