I like that Arthur is so understanding of D.W.'s loss and sense of urgency. I like that he is helpful without an adult telling him to be. He walks DW to the library and the car wash to see if the errant blankie might be there.
I also like that Arthur helps DW to use *logic* to try to deduce where she might have left the blankie.
Five Stars. These feelings of consideration and warmth are ones that I try to instill in my own children.
DW's Lost Blankie is a classic kind of story that all kids can relate to - who can't remember the sudden anxiety of losing their own blankie, or some favorite toy when they were very young? This is a short story with a light touch of humor which shows how they can deal with it, offers sympathy and reassurance and helps kids know how they can keep calm and work through tracking down that all important security object. My mom heard me reading it to my kids and laughed out loud at one point, it was so true to life.
Author Marc Brown apparently illustrates his own books. His watercolors are warm, nicely done and perfectly suited to the subject matter. We really like his style in general, so my kids (aged 2 and 5) and I will be selecting more of his stories for our bedtime reading. Highly recommended for all children from early toddlerhood through the primary school years.

D.W. badly wants her favorite Blankie, but can't find it. It's gone off-the-map and D.W.'s not going to be able to get to sleep without it. Arthur kindly agrees to help her out by taking her to some places where she might have left it. It's not at any of them, though. Later on, however, D.W. makes a surprising discovery about what happened. Will it change her feelings for Blankie?
I really like the illustrations in this book. I enjoy the pink stripes on D.W.'s outfit in the books (that aren't on the TV show) and this book takes it a step further on the cover by adding a blue speckle pattern to her pink jumpsuit. The story is warm and cute and perfect for any D.W. or Arthur fan.
