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.

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.

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.

Who Wrote Room for Bear

author & illustrator
Ciara Gavin

Ciara Gavin is an author and illustrator of picture books for children. Her titles include Room for Bear, Bear is Not Tired, Randal the Elephant and A Little Bit Worried which was illustrated by Tim Warnes. She lives and works in Dublin, Ireland.

Ciara thinks children are the best artists in the world and her dream is to one day draw as freely and joyfully as children do.

Ciara says: ‘When I make my books, I make a lot of mistakes, sometimes I spills things, break things and colour in outside of the lines but I just keep going because that is how everything in life is made including picture books.’

She thinks every home should have a cosy corner, chocolate orange biscuits, white paper and a pencil because that is all you need to get started on your own big dream.
