Wonderful Wednesday

Baby Bear words and pictures by Kadir Nelson is a loving story about a Baby Bear that is lost.  As Baby Bear wanders around the forest, he asks other animals to help him find his way.  
The artist used oil on canvas to create the illustrations for this book.  Those amazing oils paintings rendered with such sweet love and care characterizes the Baby Bear and other animals with glowing tender attention. Even when the frog is too busy to help, he still does it politely.  There is no harshness or disregard for Baby Bear's feelings.  
This story will be great with preschoolers and younger.  I can see suggesting it to a parent having separation anxiety or the child having anxiety too!  And of course using it in Storytime.
