What's Lily and Bear About

Publisher Summary

A little girl imagines her best friend who comes to life one magical afternoon in this heartwarming, debut picture book from popular Etsy artist Lisa Stubbs.

Lily likes nothing better than to imagine and draw the things she loves. She draws cats and birds and boats and houses, and one day she makes a very special drawing of a bear who comes to life. Lily shows Bear her favorite things, and Bear shows Lily his—because everyone knows that friends help friends see the world in a new way. That’s why Lily and Bear are forever friends!

This is a sweet story of friendship. If you could imagine your best friend, what would they be like? Would they love to do everything that you love, or would they have interests of their own? I love that Lily’s new best friend introduces her to some new experiences! The illustrations complement the text perfectly with some full-page spreads and skillful use of white space on other pages. Read this story again and again, and identify a new experience to try together.
