Reviews


Praise for The Very Cranky Bear series:

“Thoughtfulness and caring for others are the take-home messages in this simple, rhyming tale.” — Booklist (The Very Cranky Bear)

“Bland’s silly jungle tale . . . will have young listeners giggling, particularly once Bear’s all dolled up.” —Kirkus (The Very Cranky Bear)

“Using a singsong rhyme scheme and a comically bumbling animal cast, Bland (The Runaway Hug) playfully introduces the concepts of consideration and respect . . .” — Publisher’s Weekly (The Very Cranky Bear)

“This is a story that begs to be re-read, and it is satisfying on each read through.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials (The Very Hungry Bear)

The Very Hungry Bear is a simple and charming story that should create a basis for deeper discussion amongst family, peers and teachers, and most importantly invoke a child to question ‘Why is the polar bear losing his home?’” — Resource Links (The Very Hungry Bear)

“…a visually engaging story… This book will be a delight for children… The Very Itchy Bear teaches children about communicating, learning about other creatures, valuing life and enjoying friendship. Highly Recommended.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials (The Very Itchy Bear)

“The theme of finally finding a talent after several false tries is comforting for a child and in this case also hilarious!” — Resource Links (The Very Noisy Bear)

“This rhyming scheme is so jaunty, anyone reading this story aloud will feel like an accomplished story teller! . . . This delightful book is highly recommended for both school and public libraries. It is an entertaining story full of fun.” — Resource Links (The Very Brave Bear)

“The Very Brave Bear is a great romp through the Jingle Jangle Jungle and an excellent addition to the Bear series. It is sure to please long-time fans and attract new readers. Highly Recommended.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials (The Very Brave Bear)

“The Very Brave Bear is a great romp through the Jingle Jangle Jungle and an excellent addition to the Bear series. It is sure to please long-time fans and attract new readers. Highly Recommended.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials (The Very Brave Bear)
