The Fourteen Bears

Children's Book Monday is official now! Elise at A Path Made Straight has put up a Mr. Linky so that we all can join in and visit each other on Mondays. So come share your favorites--I've already discovered new books to share with my children.

This week I am sharing a book that I discovered and bought my daughter this past Christmas. It has quickly moved up our list of favorites! The Fourteen Bears in Summer and Winter by Evelyn Scott is a book back in print after being out of print for decades. It is the sweet story of a father and mother bear and their twelve bear cubs. It is full of detailed, colorful illustrations that are so fun to "explore" with your kids. Your children will even learn a few nature lessons along the way. Just a charming book!

What a great link and idea, I am taking note of it to get ideas for the (hopefully not too distant) future. :)

My husband still has his original copy of The Fourteen Bears. The kids love that book.

I can't believe we have not read this one. I am going to have to check it out at the library too!
Have a blessed week!

Wow - twelve cubs! A big family is always fun for kids to read about - and I love the picture on the front!
Thanks so much for the review, Kelly!
