I just adored this book. I loved the illustration. I love the straight forward and realistic ending to the story. I loved the lesson about the "right place" being home. I especially loved the mama bear. Fanciful and practical all together. ( )

I thought this book was super cute I enjoyed the pictures as well. It had a good lesson to it as well. Apologizing and accepting the blame for something that was the fault of everyone.

In this book, three young bear siblings broke their mother's blue seashell. They panicked and went on a journey to sea to find a new shell. They met many different bears and explored new islands, and in the end realized they had to tell their mother what happened and stop blaming each other.

The theme of this book is to do the right thing, even if it seems scary. This is a very important concept for children to learn because throughout life they will make mistakes and they need to know that they are held accountable for their actions. The plot in this story is relatable because children have undoubtably broken rules at home. The illustrations were colorful and engaging.

Beautiful, beautiful illustrations. The story is good too, but the illustrations are definitely the reason to read this book. If you've read Ladybug Girl at the Beach, that's kind of a preview with all the beautiful ocean and beach scenes. This one is even more gorgeous.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803739931, Hardcover)

From the co-creator of the New York Times bestselling Ladybug Girl series comes a high seas adventure inspired by the classic picture books Little Bear and Where the Wild Things Are.
Three bear siblings break their mother’s favorite blue seashell, and rather than tell her, they decide to set out in their sailboat to find her a new one. On their quest they encounter salty sailors, strange new islands, huge whales, and vast seas but no blue seashells. When a treacherous storm suddenly blows in, the three bears find themselves tossed about in their little boat, far from Mama. What will become of their search, and what will it take to bring them safely home?
This read aloud shares its best qualities with classic picture books: breath-taking illustrations, epic adventure, and a subtle message about taking responsibility for your actions.
