“Bear Has a Story to Tell” by Philip C. Stead. (Book Review)

Bear has a story to tell. Unfortunately, his friends don’t have any time to listen. Although they’d like to they have just minutes to get ready to hibernate for winter. Bear helps them get ready and vows to tell them all in the spring. Will he remember his story by then? This is such a sweet and beautiful story about patience and unlikely but meaningful friendship, Dolly and I like to read this one over and over again.
The illustrations by Erin E. Stead are gorgeous. You have to see them to really understand the beauty and message they portray. The author and illustrator are the creators of “A Sick Day for Amos McGee”, winner of the Caldecott Medal.Right now you can get this heartwarming book at Kohls for just $5 as part of their Kohl’s Cares program, where all proceeds go to profit.
