Old Bear & His Cub by Olivier Dunrea

Old Bear and his cub love each other though they don't always agree. Old Bear thinks he knows best, but sometimes so does his cub.

What I thought: A lovely book. I love the relationship that Old Bear and his cub share. The layout is great--excellent use of white space. As an illustrated character, I much prefer Old Bear. His whiskery countenance is so appealing. The illustrations are nice--I like the use of red as an accent color. My favorite illustration is Old bear and his cub outside their house.

Story Time Themes: Valentine's Day, Love, Grandparents, Bears
