We all – well, most of us – have, or have had, a bear in our lives.
In Something About a Bear Jackie Morris uses her customary fabulous art to tell the reader about bears. It’s not so much a picture book as art, really. (With a bit of reference on the side.)
On eight double spreads, Jackie introduces the reader to eight different wild bears, shown in what I take to be their natural habitats. And at the end of the book she has written eight short paragraphs of facts about these beautiful creatures.
But as she so rightly points out, we generally have a bear that is most special to us; our very own teddy bear. That is the best bear of all.
