Book Excerpt: 
. . .Why did she stare at him so? Well, he could stare back, and then blue eyes and brown confronted each other for some moments with unblinking defiance in their gaze. At last Teddy's patience gave way, and twisting up his little features into a most grotesque grimace, he mounted a hassock to give her the full benefit of it.

Instantly, out came a little red tongue at him, and at this daring piece of audacity he gasped out loud, 'I hate you!' Then, as all eyes in the surrounding pews were turned upon him, and his mother's shocked gaze met his, Teddy crimsoned to the roots of his hair, and taking up a large Prayer-book, he used it as a shield from his small antagonist during the remainder of the service. As the congregation were leaving the church later on, the rector made his way to young Mrs. Platt, who was lingering talking to a neighbour. He was a grey-haired, gentle-faced man, with a slow dreamy manner in speaking.

My kids got the audio of this fantastic book, written by Amy LeFeuvre in 1896, for Christmas a few years ago. A precious story.
Here is the description:
Who is your most foul and cruel enemy? After reading Teddy’s Button, you may have a new answer to that question. Flamboyant Teddy Platt cannot kee...more

The kids and I listened to this audio book through Lamplighter Publishing, and it was well done. We were captivated by the wonderful story of friendship, forgiveness, facing our weaknesses, and what it means to follow Christ.

Teddy is a young boy who loves his father's war button. He talks to the town boys about his father's heroic death in battle and wants to be just like him. Teddy wants to become a good soldier, but he is also faced with becoming a good Christian and being a good warrior in God's army too. He becom...more

A cute, classic children’s story about a naughty little boy becoming a soldier of God. Very sweet. I really enjoy this author.

This is certainly Amy Le Feuvre’s most popular book, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I have some of her other books. My memory of the others is vague, but I recall the children in her other works coming off as truly childlike, while Teddy’s deep thinking and piety make him seem contrived.

Teddy is a young boy full of mischief. He is very popular among the boys because of his great story-telling skills and ideas for getting into mischief. His favorite story of all is the one about his father. His father was a soldier, a hero who died in battle. Teddy carries his father's war button...more

We have the audio drama version of this and have listened to it many, many times!

This is a shorter illustrated version of the original work but still long for reading in one session. A young boy is learning how to please his Captain by how he loves the people around him.

I had heard about this from a mom from school. I was not sure what I was getting when I got the book. I had to do a interlibrary loan and it came from another state. At first I was confused. There was a boy names Teddy. His father was a soldier and had died in war. Teddy had a button from his fat...more

This illustrated, abridged version of Teddy's Button is one of our family's favorites. It is such a beautiful, beautiful book! I got choked up at one point and I think my husband was misty-eyed, too. I highly recommend it. It took a few nights to get through, but my boys hung on every word and be...more
