Bear's Book

author: Claire Freedman
illustrator: Alison Friend

When Bearís favorite book of stories falls apart, he is determined to write one of his own. He ventures into the forest for inspiration, but writing is harder than he thinks, and he soon discovers that he needs help from his friends. See how Bear transforms their day into a wonderful adventure in this story about creativity and friendship.

A story about stories, writing, reading, and friendship. "Reading, writing, listening, helping, thanking: Bear and his animal friends can inspire young readers in family, school, or library settings." ó Kirkus Reviews
