The endpapers depicting Bear engaged in every activity, from sticking his paws in yogurt cups to finding himself belly-down in puddles of paint, drill home the fun to be had with a stuffed little friend. Muck and mess make good, clean fun.

Synopsis

Flora loves Bear just the way he is . . . so what will she do when he emerges all clean from the washing machine?

Flora loves her Bear dearly, but her mom says it’s time for him to go in the wash. Beautifully imagined scenes show Bear, in the wash, remembering how much fun they had getting grubby in the first place. When Bear is clean, he’s just not the same, so Flora sets out to have some fun and get him back to his dirty but loveable self again. Then, at the end of a long day, it’s Flora’s turn to have a wash — and good old Bear still loves clean Flora just the same.
