What's Room for Bear About

Publisher Summary

A huggable picture-book debut about a bear who doesn’t quite fit—perfect for fans of Karma Wilson’s Bear Snores On and Philip C. Snead & Erin Stead’s Bear Has a Story to Tell.

When Bear wakes up one spring, he goes in search of a new home. And he thinks he’s found the perfect place. Unfortunately, things are a bit . . . snug.

Can five little ducks find room for one big bear in their home—and in their hearts? Ciara Gavin’s luminous picture-book debut explores the unconditional love of families in all their colors, shapes, and sizes.

This adorable blended family (ducks + a bear) absolutely has my heart. I love the charming watercolor illustrations and the message that home is when you’re all together.

The message of this book is beautiful! This is a great book for adopted children, foster children, or blended families. I also love that Bear problem solves and figures out a better solution to make their home fit their family better.
