Something About a Bear

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Jackie Morris pours her awe and admiration for all types of bears into the stunning artwork that make up this gorgeous picture book. Each spread depicts another species of bear, giving information about their habitat or diet. There is expanded information at the back of the book. The text itself is very brief, but filled with the sense of majesty that these magnificent animals command. Bear-lovers will simply love seeing these creatures portrayed with such respect whilst children will enjoy learning how individual each type of bear is. The final page adds a sweet sentiment to the book, giving a nod to the teddy bear as the most special bear of all.

A beautiful gift for bear and book lovers alike, this is a showpiece for Morris's paintings which are as awe-inspiring as their subjects.
