Paddington books are just sweet. These have been winners with my girls each time we've checked another one out. Paddington Bear, having recently relocated to London, England from "deepest, darkest Peru", has been taken in by the Brown family. He quickly became an invaluable member of their family, bringing excitement & the unknown to each new day as he is learning to adjust to life in the big city. We love the little predicaments he always finds himself in & finds his way out of with the help of his new family & friends. These stories paint an excellent example of how families should act toward the other members of their family & how we can practice unconditional love toward one another in all circumstances.

Age recommendation: all ages

Absolutely hillarious! The Brown family discover a small bear "from Darkest Peru" at Paddington station. They can't in good conscience leave him there, so they take him in. Whether doing the simplest thing (ie. taking a bath) or going for a grand night out at the thearter, Paddington can't stay out of trouble! It is perfect humor for the young and young at heart. The recording is excellant, and the narrator portrays the personalities of the charachters beautifully. Altogether great!
