Written by the wonderful Greg Gormley, illustrated by the talented David Barrow and published by Nosy Crow. This picture book is perfect for simply enjoying or teaching children about identity, relationships and belonging!
When Nelly asks Bear what kind of bear he is, he isn’t entirely sure how to answer. So off he goes to find out. But none of the different bears he meets on his travels are like him. Grizzly bears don’t have stitching; polar bears don’t have tags attached to their bottoms; spectacled bears are not as soft and bouncy as Bear is; and sun bears never wear bow ties. Disheartened, he returns to Nelly . . . only to discover what kind of bear he is — her own special bear!
Praise for the book:
The illustrations use shading, line, and speckles over muted browns, blues, and greens, emphasizing characters and sketching their settings. Thoughtfully layered and simply sweet.
