Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
5.5 / 7.0

Busy illustrations and a meandering storyline combine to make this unique book! The pages have cutouts that make the illustrations even more interesting than they already are, as holes from each page make one element of the illustration remain from the last page. As there is so much going on in the illustrations, it’s really fun to find little bear on his journey throughout the story and check out all the other details on the page. What starts as a little journey after a winter’s nap leads to an eventful circus performance and a new baby bear sibling! This book is one of a kind.
