Pup and Bear by Kate Banks, illustrated by Naoko Stoop

I don’t often write about children’s picture book, but this one is exceptional.  It is a beautiful story about motherhood, acceptance and selflessness.  A baby wolf gets lost from the pack and happens upon a female polar bear.  The little pup is frightened that the bear will eat him, but instead she promises to care for him until he is ready to face the world alone.  Everything about this picture book is wonderful-the serene illustrations, the simple yet profound language and the positive message.  The perfect book for a child for every occasion but especially for an adoption and/or Mother’s Day.

Perfect for ages 4-7.

    Thank you, Nancy, for your Pup and Bear review. I sent a copy to my great-nephew in Japan. I think he and his parents will like it very much!
