Editorial Reviews

Review

"... a look into the world of child abuse through the survivor's eyes... a five-year-old boy."
"I found myself praying for him throughout the book."
"... there was his childlike vocabulary, his bright mind, his  sweet spirit, even his ignorance of what was happening, it was all like a buffer against the horror of it."

From the Author

My name is JD Stockholm. I am the author of Dear Teddy.
I wrote this to give a child that never had one a voice. I also blog as I go. The blog is mostly for my journey. To get those thoughts out that linger in my mind until I am driven crazy. Its sharing. Maybe someone reading will realise they are not alone. Maybe when someone comments I will realise that too.
We all walk along different paths, but sometimes, when the road is rocky, the way to go is unclear and you just need that helping hand. Its good to look over the canyon next you and see someone else doing the same.
Give them a little wave. Smile say Hi. And know that why ever you are here reading. If your struggles plague you. You are not alone.
The book or blog maybe triggering. Please read with caution if you have been a victim of abuse in any kind.

I am honored and privileged to have been the first to read Dear Teddy in its entirety. The writing is superb and honest, raw and innocent in its compelling portrayal of a boy's life; his trials and pain. He takes you on a day to day journey into his home. He shows you his loved ones and their brutal betrayal of him. He shares his tears and his heartfelt sorrow. A little boy who has no one to talk to except Mr. Ted, his only friend. I am sure this book will stand out to be the first of its kind. A story that you can feel from a child's perspective; one that most of us cannot completely comprehend and on a subject many of us do not take the time to think about. I cried with him as he told me his story in his own words. You will too and my prayer is that our eyes will be opened to the things we cannot see and we will wrap our arms around all children. May they never hurt like this one. Thank you JD for writing this and sharing it with me.

The minute I saw the title I immediately wanted to read and find out what the book was about. As I began to read I was attached. I have yet to finish the book but I can sadly relate in so many ways to this book. This book does bring me back memories and I accompany the boy with his cries as I read. However it reminds me of why I am the strong person I am today. Till this day I have my teddy for more than 13 years. I strongly suggest for everyone to read this book.

This is a horrific tale of a young boy who is brutally molested in the worst way possible. What makes this story stand out is that the story feels like it has been written by a 5 y/o child. All the brutality seen through innocent eyes, expressed with the words of an innocent babe.

It's taken me a while to read this story. This, from someone who normally stays up until all hours to finish a book. I needed time with this one. Time to try and understand how this could happen. Time to get the image of the little boy and his teddy bear out of my head. Time to make myself believe this is a work of fiction, because no one could inflict such cruelty on a child... right? Everyone hears the stories and sees the horrific news reports, but it's not very often when you get to hear the story from a young victim. The writing is simple and pure. It will break your heart and make you want to give your loved ones an extra hug.

My heart broke over and over again, for this little boy. Monsters under your bed or in your closet, we've all heard of them; his were real.

Innocence stolen. Trust broken. Betrayed by the very ones who should've protected him the most; his parents. It is unfathomable to me, that a child be imprisoned in such a loveless world of blame, cruelty, deception and pain, with only a teddy bear for comfort. This book gives its reader a sobering look into the terrifying world of child abuse, as seen through the survivor's eyes... a five-year-old boy.

His courage and unbreakable spirit are prevalent throughout his story. Just as I did, you will feel what he felt; his sadness, bewilderment, embarrassment, self-hatred... even rage. And although it maybe a bit confusing to some, his loyalty and unconditional love for his parents are ever-present.

I too, know this author personally, and have shared many a tear with him. I also know what a difficult decision it was, for him to share his story with the world. Thank you, J.D., for taking me into your confidence, for your trust, and for allowing it to be proven, that you could indeed be accepted, respected, and loved, when you thought no one would.

For other survivors, I hope this book gives them a bit of comfort in knowing, that there are people out there who understand, and that they are not alone in their nightmares.

Reading this book will definitely change you...if even for only a moment. I highly recommend that you purchase it, as you would be cheating yourself if you didn't.

JD Stockholm's Dear Teddy will reach for you as a child reaches for a protective embrace. As any human being, you will be unable to turn away from this child's cry for help. You will love the authors fresh writing style.

The brutal account of this sweet innocent child's journey through hell will bring you to the edge of rage. You will love, cry and hate. Your heart will break, then split open at the plight of this young boy.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a heart.

I sit writing this review at the moment with tears still stinging my eyes. The intensity of my sadness is so profound that I find myself struggling to think of a way to put into words what exactly I am feeling. Sorrow, heartsickness, shock, anger, hate - they all seem too mild a word.

Before starting this book, I knew it would be a hard read. Hard in the sense that this is child abuse we are talking about, and what is worse, unfortunately, not a fictitious tale. It is difficult and unpalatable to even conceive that there are people in the world that would do these things to their own children. That there are people out there that can be so insensitive and inhumane. It is even more horrendous to imagine this kind of thing still goes on the world.

A young boy, whose sole aim and hope is to win the love of his parents, is constantly beaten down in his attempt while being abused and betrayed over and over again by the very two people who should have loved him unconditionally and protected him from all things bad - not been the source of them. Young, vulnerable and innocent, he seeks love and affection. He seeks it from the two people that should have freely given it to him - unadulterated. He seeks it from two monsters, who should have never been given the right to be parents. Completely ruthless and callous, they succeed in making a young, innocent boy believe he is unworthy of their love. Of anyone's love. His only consolation is in his teddy bear. His only friend. His only confidante. One of the most heart-breaking moments in the book is when he questions even his inanimate teddy's affection, believing that he is undeserving of even that.

The author has done a wonderful job in getting his story across.
