A Book for Bear

We rated this book:


Bear loves books. Every day he listens to a young girl, Ellen, as she reads books aloud to her forest friends. She reads all kinds of books, and Bear loves them all. One day he tells Ellen he wants to have a book of his very own. When he asks where Ellen gets her books, she says she gets them at school, but bears aren’t allowed in school. They disguise Bear and try to sneak him in, but it doesn’t work. Then Ellen says the library has books, but bears aren’t allowed there either. They try another disguise but to no avail. No luck at the bookstore either. Can they find a way for Bear to have his own book?

Ellen Ramsey has written a sweet story that book-loving youngsters (which is most youngsters) will totally get. Both Bear and Ellen are determined to find a way for Bear to have his very own book, and ultimately, they find a solution. The writing is lovely. The illustrations by MacKenzie Haley are perfectly charming and the perfect complement to this cute story. This will become a fast favorite with youngsters who will want to hear it again and again.
