You might have to click on this picture to really appreciate it. Can you see the bear with its hands on its beefy, beary bits? This is the hidden bonus of playdates at Hamish's friends' houses. You never know what treasures you'll discover. Our bear friend is from a Chinese board book. I think I am now an official fan of Chinese products, poisonous red paint be damned, because you would never in a million years find a photo like this in an American children's book. Can you imagine the Oprah episode condemning the filthy publisher? I took the picture on the sly with my phone camera when the live-in nanny was busying herself in the kitchen toasting cheesy bread and chicken nuggets. Mmm. Nuggets.
