Book Review - Bear in Love

About the Book
Could the bear have a secret friend? Who is leaving him surprises? The ever-lovable Daniel Pinkwater spins a funny and sweetly offbeat story.

One morning, the bear finds something just outside his cave. It is orange and long and pointy and has bushy green leaves at one end. And it’s sweet and crunchy! Where did it come from? Did someone leave it for him? Then there are two more of the sweet crunchy things the next morning! The bear knows that someone nice is leaving him these treats. If only he could discover who it is! Should he leave something tasty in return? With the help of Will Hillenbrand’s endearing illustrations, the inimitable Daniel Pinkwater spins a charming little mystery about unexpected kindnesses and finding that extra-special someone.

My Take on the Book
Daniel Pinkwater has written a very sweet story that young children will enjoy. There is a mystery in the story as bear does not know who is leaving him tasty treats. Your child will eagerly anticipate the outcome of learning the identity of bear's generous friend.

Bear's songs of thankfulness and wonder are repetitive so even the youngest child can learn them and help "read" the story with you.

In the end, there is an unlikely friendship that forms between bear and bunny.How appropriate to introduce the concepts of friendship forming with people who are different from ourselves.

The illustrations by Will Hillenbrand add special charm to this delightful story.
