Gift from Meghan R.

A boy and a bear cub grow up together, but the bear becomes too "bearish" and they try to find him somewhere else to live. The bear vetoes most ideas (zoo, circus, forest, cave). Once he is resettled in the Arctic, they stay in touch ("chit-chatting on the phone") and later decide to take a trip together like they used to - the last page shows them walking under a Departures banner with tropical gear. I like the typographical touches, like Bear's "No" on the circus page being in big circus letters.

This beautifully illustrated, fun read-aloud will have kids everywhere asking the same question: "Where, bear?"

Once there was a bear cub who lived with a little boy. But over time the bear cub grew . . . and grew . . . and GREW! And did things that bears do . . . and do . . . and DO! One day the boy looked at the bear and realized he was just too big and bearish to be living in a house. "I think it's time we found you a new place to live where you can be bearish and big," said the boy. "But where, bear?"

So begins a delightful journey that reminds us that even when best friends are apart, they always stay together.
