Bedtime Story: The Last Bit Bear by Sandra Chisholm deYonge & Illustrated by Ellen Ditzler Meloy

Read for: TBR/ Munchkin's Book Reports

Synopsis: "An ecological fable tells the story of Clover, the last bear of his kind, and his journey to the sanctuary of a national park."

My Review: Munchkin received this book as a gift when he was a baby and it was lost on our bookshelf until recently. This was a really cute book that is cute and approachable for kids of all ages. The illustrations are beautiful! The story reminds me a bit of The Lorax with a more real world approach. It packs an important message about our impact on the earth and the animals that were here first. It sparked some interesting conversations with Munchkin as well.

My Rating: I love the timelessness of this tale, it can be read at any point and still relate to the disappearing natural world around us and those who are striving to preserve it.  Munchkin really enjoyed this story and we happened to read it while they were talking about recycling at school, so we got some great conversations out of it.  We give it a rating of Four Paws!

Note: This is a bit of a longer book that I usually post on Bedtime Stories, it is a first chapter book but it is easy to read with a beautiful story and great illustrations.  Going forward with Bedtime Stories I will be including a mix of Picture Books, Early Reader Books and First Chapter books as Munchkin expands his reading.  Munchkin has been required for the past 2 years now to read a book each week and write a book report every week, so we read a lot of books along these lines so expect many more in the future.

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
