Publishers Weekly, 1986-05-23 When Jamaica finds an old stuffed animal in the park, she wants to keep it, but with her mother's gentle prompting, she decides to turn it in to the lost-and-found. Soon after, she meets Kristin, who lost the dog, and takes pride in reuniting the girl with her treasured toy. Children Jamaica's age, struggling with the concepts of right and wrong, will undoubtedly find Jamaica's moral dilemma of great interest. O'Brien's watercolors are warm and appealing. Although no attention is called to the fact that Jamaica is black, the book's depiction of a happy black family will provide a valuable role model for children of all races.
