The toy box has erupted and the toys are perched high, dangling low, hanging by a thread. Bard, the old bear, has been lucky enough to land in the underwear drawer and from there is able to assist his friends, if only they will follow his daring directions. By a Thread is about heroism in small places, all the different kinds of courage a child can draw upon. The text rhymes, and its rhythm takes the tongue on a rollicking ride. Even the most determined reader will not be able to read the story silently.

One day, when the toy box exploded with a very loud BOOM, Beo and all her toys were scattered across the room. But it took her old teddy bear to find out that the floor was no longer there. A rescue attempt was soon planned out, and then they all joined in the plan with a shout. And as one of the toys hung on by a thread, the old bear helped them all tumble into bed. The delightful rhythm and daring rhyme are the best book part of book reading time. My apologies to the author for such a bad verse, but really things could get worse!
