Bears First Christmas

by Robert Kinerk

This book is one of the best childrens books that I have read this school year. An absolutely sweet little book about a bear who finds the Christmas spirit just by being himself - being compassionate about others and doing the right thing because it is the correct thing to do.

The book is written in beautiful poetry and mesmerized my 4 and 5 year olds this morning at circle time. Not a peep from the little ones. It is beautifully illustrated by Jim LaMarche. A magical book in it's simplicity and message.

The library that I frequent is asking for book donations for children. The child that I picked from the tree is 4. I'm hoping that she loves this book also.

Thanks for the recommendation! I love to collect Christmas books. Just the cover illustration alone is sweet.

This sounds so wonderful. I'll look for it. Thank you for your nice words on my tattoo posting. I feel so sad for your cousin. I know two young women who got roses in honor of their beloved grandmother when she died. Thanks again, Jodi.
