Is Bear Here?
Little Hare, 2017
32pp., pbk., RRP $A24.99
Bear is lost. Where could he be? Perhaps he has been left in town. At the market? At the museum? Perhaps at the park? Oh no. Bear is nowhere to be found. But wait…
Reminiscent of a stage show where the villain keeps popping up but the hero doesn’t see him, and the audience is screaming loudly “There! Look!” but split-second timing is everything, this companion to Where is Bear will delight very young readers. Luckily in this story, though, bear isn’t a villain – in fact he is the hero.
A perfect book for teaching little ones about the joys of story and the fun to be had between the pages of books while they empathise with the trauma of having lost a favourite companion.
