Bear Make Den

authors: Michael Wagner; Jane Godwin
illustrator: Andrew Joyner

“Den good. Den great. Den just right.”

Bear is sitting on the floor of his empty new den when he suddenly notices it’s not quite done. It needs . . . chairs! And a table! But stretched out on his table after a carpentry job well done, Bear realizes his den is still not quite right. . . . Cozy furniture, nice lamps, delicious food, an enticing game — is there anything Bear’s den still needs as he stands alone and surveys his handiwork? Vibrantly colored illustrations make kids feel right at home in this fun-to-read ode to friendship.

Bear has made a wonderful den for himself, but is something missing? A warm, playful story about what truly makes a home.
