This is the tale of a care bear called Winnie. Winnie is a near that loves his owner, and make many storys together.And overall, the story is an entertaining story that is one of my favorite books for children.

A sweet - true! - story with nice, nostalgic illustrations. It's great to see some nonfiction for very young kids; this story would be appropriate for kids as young as 4 or 5, I'd say, depending on their attention span. Book includes photos inside the front and back covers.
