This Caldacott honor book deserves all the praise it has received. We start with a river. Then the bear comes along. Then the Frog, and so on, and so on. Each animal/s helping the other and learning to lean when needed. The Illustrations are amazing. They propel the story and rev the excitement for the big finish. It all blends together beautifully.

In Bear Came Along, Richard T. Morris writes in his picture book about a group of animals that go on a river journey and test their bravery. Morris got his inspiration for the children’s novel from his first overnight camping adventure, where he learned about friendship and sharing fun times with friends. I thought the best part of the book was the illustrations and I really enjoyed the expressions on the animals’ faces. ( )

Once there was a river flowing through a forest. The river didn't know it could have all these adventures until a bear came along. But Bear wasn't alone. A frog, turtles, beaver, racoons, and duck tag along. These very different animals didn't know they needed each other until the river came along. I think this is a good story about friendship and would be perfect to read to an elementary classroom. ( )

A big bear, who goes on adventures but not alone, with turtles, beaver, racoons, and duck because adventures just aren’t fun alone, this takes place in a forest following a river downstream. This book is used for celebrating going on journeys with friends and not going through things alone, this is very important because in the classroom students often feel as if they embark on their educational journey alone. This is a good book to implement into the classroom to help students find their voice and realize teamwork makes the dreamwork. This is a good book to read and is very useful for grades 4-8. ( )

This book is so cute! Bear falls into a river, and along the way he makes friends, that then join him in the river to. None of them know where they will end up but enjoy each others company and making memories along the way. At the end they come to a waterfall and all hold on to each other as they go down the waterfall. It is a simple, cute picture book. To me it showcases that friends can be made in the most unexpected times, and the importance of friendship. ( )
