TITLE: Got To Get To Bear’s
AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR: Brian Lies
PUBLISHER: Clarion Books, 2018
SYNOPSIS: “Bear never asks for anything. So when a letter arrives for the little chipmunk Izzy, urgently requesting her presence, she can’t refuse–even if there is a blizzard on the way! This heartwarming tale of friendship from bestselling author Brian Lies will melt even the chilliest of hearts.”
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : Among all the animals in the natural world, one of my least favorite is the bear. I don’t know why, but books about bears don’t really capture my attention.
Until I came across this one.
I like the colorful illustrations and how Bear’s friends eagerly overcome any obstacle to get to their friend. Not even a snowstorm can stand in their way. That level of dedication to friendships is a dying art and author Brian Lies has managed to remind us what is important in the hectic world we live in. A sweet, heartwarming story and a MUST addition to any children’s library!
RATING: *****5 Stars *****
1 star…probably not worth your time.
2 stars…there are some things to like, but could elements have been stronger.
3 stars…this story will appeal to some readers but others might find it lacking something.
4 stars…strong story, nice illustrations, and should grab the attention of many readers.
5 stars…superbly written story, stellar illustrations, a must addition to any book lovers’ collection!
