Ellie loves Scruffle, he’s her oldest and her best teddy bear. But Scruffle only has one eye, is held together by moldy thread, and has a rather disgusting smell. Ellie’s mom decides it’s time for a brand new bear . . . But Ellie doesn’t like her new teddy bear—who has ever heard of a bear that smells like flowers? Ellie’s mom insists she gives the new toy a chance. So Ellie takes him with her while she plays cowboys and Indians and helps granddad in the garden, and he soon ends up just as whiffy as Scruffle! Meanwhile Mom tries to understand what it is Ellie loves about Scruffle. While smelly, he is also extremely cuddly. Ellie asks to keep both bears and her mom agrees, but only if they both take a spin in the washing machine! A wonderful way to introduce the topic of coping with change, any child with a favorite toy will enjoy this story.
