At the BN Kids Blog Erin Jones tagged six of the best books about losing treasured stuffed animals, including:
Olivia ... and the Missing Toy, by Ian Falconer

Our favorite precocious three-year-old pig, Olivia, has lost her favorite toy. The green and red rag doll goes missing, after Olivia insists it was last seen on her bed. A pighunt ensues and couches are lifted, cushions are moved, and a relentless piglet even looks under the family cat. Finally, on a dark and stormy night, Olivia hears a noise and sees a scary shadow. It turns out the family dog found the doll and has chewed it to bits. Rather than getting upset, Olivia mends her doll and adores it with all the imperfections. Your little detective will love following along with Olivia and searching for clever clues within the illustrations.
