I Must Have Bobo!

I Must Have Bobo! by Eileen Rosenthal is a new release for 2011 and just delightful.  Bobo is a sock monkey and a little boys best friend.  Bobo helps the little boy every day.  Together they explore, inquire, color, play, and overcome fears.  Then the reader discovers how much this little boy needs Bobo because he panics when he can't find him.  Earl the cat is cuddling Bobo.  Twice more Earl the cat takes Bobo and each time it takes longer for the little boy to find him.  In the end, the three characters find a solution to work out who gets Bobo that is charming.  I think young children will easily connect to this text.  I also think they would love to share their must have object that helps, guides, and soothes them.
