A Song for Bear
A Song for Bear is about this bear who woke up one morning and he heard the birds chirping again, which they did frequently. He decided to join in on the song, but the noise that came out was not quite a song. It was, as the author Gabby Dawnnay put it, “A racket, a rumpus, a terrible din.” He goes through the book trying to be like a bird, changing himself while talking to the owl. But he learns, from the help of his owl friend, that he has his own talents, and he does not have to change himself because he is amazing and unique just the way he is. That is one reason I really loved this book–because it teaches that we should be us, and we are incredible beings.
I enjoyed reading this book to my younger brother, who is five years old. He really enjoys it now, and it is one of his favorite books! I suggest this book for kids six years old and younger, but any aged person can find warmth in the message to always be yourself and not to change into someone else just because you feel pressured to. At the end of the story, Bear is serene with himself and feels peace within. We all can probably connect to Bear in our life at some point, but we should take this lesson and grow upon it.
This book is well written in poem and rhyme. I think that this is a book with a fun story most people will enjoy.
