A Story for Bear

A Story for Bear Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a young bear finds a scrap of an old letter, he is so curious about the mysterious marks that he searches out their source--a cabin in the woods. There he meets a young woman and is mesmerized by the sound of her voice. Though he cannot understand her words, he returns every day to hear the woman's stories of sailors, goddesses, and far-off lands.

Dennis Haseley's magical fantasy and Jim LaMarche's luminous illustrations together celebrate the joy of reading. A book sure to delight any child who has ever been read to.

Review:

"Soft-edged...illustrations utilize dynamic perspectives to reflect the bear's viewpoint....This gentle message about the power of words is a tender, wistful celebration of the pleasures of reading." Julie Cummins, Booklist

Synopsis:

Never underrestimate the power of reading: Like a mother and child, a bear and a woman meet at a summer cabin and become friends through the world of books.
