A Visitor for Bear
Bonny Becker, author
Kady MacDonald, illustrator
2008

Bear is a curmudgeon who despises visitors. When his breakfast preparations are repeatedly disrupted by a “small and gray and bright-eyed” mouse who simply won’t go away without a cup of tea, Bear finally gives in. A beautiful example of true friendship in children’s literature that demonstrates how unlikely, yet genuine relationships can develop. Bear remains a curmudgeon throughout, but Mouse’s cheerful persistence reminds the reader that in spite of appearances, everybody needs faithful friends. Features beautiful watercolor illustrations and teatime.

We have also enjoyed A Birthday for Bear and look forward to reading A Bedtime for Bear and The Sniffles for Bear.
