Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Goodfather
Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
5.0 / 7.0

The whimsical watercoloring and playful text make Oh, Bear a delightful story of fun and friendship. The soft illustrations give it a high re-readability appeal, as does Bear’s good natured attitude. Yet for all it’s fun, there’s a nice level of depth to the tale, of celebrating when your loss becomes another’s gain.

The Fun Uncle
Mountain Biker, Story Reader, Information Systems
4.5 / 7.0

This book had a thoughtful message of sharing and loving. Bear is a good example of not hanging on to possessions when they need to be passed on to help someone in need.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.75 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are so soft, and while the story isn’t long, it’s delightfully sweet and charming, leaving plenty of room for the reader’s imagination to wander.
