Rated 4 out of 5 by from a good story about forgiveness How easy it is to misunderstand one another. In this story, a girl is flying her kite and the string breaks. The kite comes down and floats to the inside of a bear's cave. The sleeping bear rolls over and smashes the kite, unintentionally. The girl calls him a horrible bear, waking him up with her shouting, and then stomps home in a temper. The bear is now irritable, having been wakened by an angry little girl, and decides he should give the girl a taste of her own medicine. In the meantime, the girl causes an accident at home that she, of course, didn't mean to happen. It dawns on her that maybe the bear wasn't horrible after all. The bear stomps to her house to be mean in return, but then ... something else takes place. This is a good story about forgiveness.

Editorial Reviews

"Author Dyckman has a knack for combining humor with emotional truths, and illustrator OHora delivers a charming spitfire of a character with a mess of red curls as unruly as her emotions."-Common Sense Media
