Big Bear Hug is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
A huge bear is wandering through the forest - but wait a minute! Who''s that he''s hugging? A beaver? And a moose? And a bird? And a tree? Welcome to the world of Big Bear Hug, a contemporary fable about a bear who has an appetite for hugging everything in sight - even creatures that bears have been known to eat. One day, the benevolent bear meets up with a human. This human proceeds to do something the bear cannot understand: he raises his axe and begins to cut down a tree. Suddenly the bear doesn''t feel like hugging anymore and must make a difficult decision on how to stop this destruction in his forest. The environmental message of Big Bear Hug is both funny and powerful, while simple enough to engage very young children and show them the awesome power of a hug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book by Canadian Author One of my new favorites, this book is a great addition to your library, especially for teachers. The clever illustrations and simple humor would be appropriate for any age, and the content is easy to connect with social studies, language arts, or science! A charming way to discuss our environment, emotions, and interactions.

Editorial Reviews

Oldland’s rustic-styled digital artwork looks like a hip flannel pajama print ... and his pictures play sly comic foil to the earnest text.

Appropriate for ages: 3 - 5
