Rusty Bear and Thomas, Too Paperback – September 4, 2013
About the Author
Russ Towne lives in the San Francisco bay area with his wife of 33 years, Heidi. They have three adult children, a grandson, and two more grandsons (TWINS!) on the way. Russ founded an investment management firm over a decade ago. Convinced he didn't have a creative bone in his body, at the age of 52 a friend invited him to co-write a song. Russ loved it and in short time he co-wrote several songs, wrote over 60 poems and became a children's author many times over. His other titles include "Clyde and I", and "Clyde and I Help a Hippo to Fly".

Through rhyming, this book is about Thomas. Thomas is a young boy who finds a wooden bear. He comes and visits the bear and they turn into good friends. Through the power of imagination, friendship and some will power the two of them end up saving a bird and his family.
What I love is how Towne touches on many childhood feelings. This helps the kids relate to Rusty Bear. First of all the bear is not real, but Thomas gives it life. At one point through the power of imagination the bear comes to life. At the end of the book, Thomas is not sure if the bear was really alive or not. When kids play, they become one with their toys and I think this is what makes this book so relatable.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The kids learned a little about friendship and helping others while having fun with Thomas and Rusty Bear. A very good book directed toward the hearts of kids.
I received a copy of Rusty Bear and Thomas, Too in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine and were in no way influenced by outside sources. I am a professional blogger at Little Lady Plays
Full disclosure - I helped him get the book off the ground via kickstart, but beyond a free copy, I have no financial interest in the book.
