Big Bear Hug (2009)
4.18 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This bear loves to hug. He'll hug anything, but his favorite thing to hug is trees. When he finds a man with an ax in the forest, he doesn't feel very hugging. What I thought: I loved Big Bear Hug! I can't wait to pair it with Hugless Douglas. The story is sweet and the illustrat...
L'orignal qui avait la frousse (2000)

review 1: I got this as a Christmas gift. I was so moved by this sweeping narrative! From the moose's vacant stare on the front cover to the moose's vacant stare as he goes skiing, hockey-ing, marshmallow-roasting, and parachuting at the back of the book, I LOVED the moose's every adventur...

review 1: Another tale about taking responsibility for one's actions towards othes and the environment. Using his now familiar palatte of greens, blues and browns and a supporting cast of characters from his earlier books, Oldland explores the concept of unthinking carelessness in a beave...
Up the Creek (2013)

review 1: Oh how I identified with this story of three best friends trying to get along on their canoe trip. I may have been giggling far too loudly at the desk while I flipped through the page. Children and adults will enjoy this story because I think no matter how old you are, you know...
Dinosaur Countdown (2012)
3.18 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: My toddler grabbed this off the shelf at the library and threw it in our bag of books to take home. I think he finds the bold and rather maniacal-looking dinosaur pictures appealing, and I don't blame him. They are pretty funny to look at. This book would be best for a true dino ...
