The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Teddy Bears and Toy Soldiers:  A Playful Dozen

--selected by Kate Quealy-Gainer, Assistant Editor

The gift giving season is upon us and while we here at the Bulletin think books make the best presents (see our Guide Book to Gift Books here), we have nothing against toys, especially when they make an appearance in said books. The playthings in the following books have an added bonus, however, and bring some playful life to the reading experience.
