Ted. E. Bear is one of five very different brothers and sisters, "cubbies," in the Bear Family. One day Teddy hears Lily Bear telling Mommy that she feels very loved when mommy rubs her face at night to help Lily go to sleep. He then begins a quest to discover what makes each of the cubbies feel loved. Whether it's gifts, time together or something else, he learns a big lesson about his siblings. Teddy discovers that not only do the cubbies feel love differently, but when they just talk about how they feel loved, they feel better. They realize remembering good times can lift your spirit! As Teddy says, "Don't you think the world would be a happier place if we remembered how much we are loved?" This story can open lines of communication and improve the bond between you and your child and help nurture empathy, kindness, communication and relationships. You may even learn something about yourself!

I envision readings of Feeling Loved in classrooms, bookstores, troop meetings, places of worship, libraries, and in family rooms. We know children need to feel they are loved and it can make a profound difference.. Imagine what a great future we can create if more children truly feel loved.
Faced with a life-threatening illness when my daughter Lily was born in 1998, I experienced the tremendous power of love. Without the love from my family and friends, I could not have survived, become a mom, and been able to share this message. My experience is that, in all situations, love can, and does, make a huge difference in a person's life.
At the end of the story Teddy asks the child reading the book to share how he or she feels loved. Please send me your examples or pictures to: Teddy Bear Books, PO Box 3635, Annapolis, MD 21403. Or email BWebber01@gmail.com
