Thomas Weck (Author), Peter Weck (Author), Len DiSalvo (Illustrator)
Reading level: Ages 4-8
Hardcover: 32 pages
Publisher: Lima Bear Press; First edition (July 1, 2011)
"Can you imagine what it would be like to lose your back!!? Well, that is exactly what happens to Plumpton, the Opossum. Lima Bear and his clever friends become detectives searching for this missing back. Follow them as they try new and different ways of thinking to solve the mystery. See how they band together to protect each other in times of danger! Will they ever find Plumpton's back? The message of the story is: The tolerance of difference in others yields benefits. In the series entitled The Lima Bear Stories, each has a distinct personality that shines through in every story. While the children have no idea what twists and turns the story may take, they come to know the characters and have a pretty good idea of how they are likely to act in different situations and settings. In essence, the children become friends with the characters. There is a form of bonding that develops. Each story carries an important overriding message (such as courage, tolerance, honesty), and we believe that knowing the characters creates a better understanding and appreciation of the message."
What we thought: Another cute story from The Lima Bear series, "How Back-Back Got His Name" teaches the important lessons of courage and tolerance, as well as the skill of problem solving. Once again, our kiddos enjoyed the fun and colorful story of these adorable animal friends. This book would be great for little ones 2-8. ABCD Diaries gives "How Back-Back Got His Name" an A+!
