Chubby’s Tale The true story of a teddy bear who beat cancer, is adorable. It is a children’s book written by Carola Schimdt whose books I have covered one of her books before I will link that review at the end of this one if you are curious.
Chubby’s Tale is a delightful children’s book about a little teddy bear who feels sick and seeks the help of doctor toys in the store he lived in while he waits to be purchased. It is close to Christmas time, and he wants to make sure he can be purchased for a happy child.
The story easily holds attention, from Chubby feeling sick to his cure, cancer, particularly Leukemia, is explained simply for a child to understand, as is bone marrow transplant. These difficult subjects are covered in a warm narration. In addition to the excellent story and information the artwork is cute and warm.
So is Chubby’s Tale something to read to your child? I think so. I also think it would make a fantastic stocking stuffer this holiday season.
Here is another work by Carola Schimdt.
