This is always FUN to read to your kids. But if YOU'VE never heard it read before, I strongly recommend that you download this and listen to the narration. Both you and your child will love it, and it will inspire your reading in the years to come.
This is a great story of strangers overcoming adversity and suspicion and finding postive ways to bring out the best in people to be accepted into the community. Definitely fun and satisfying to read with your child.
I just loved reading this to my youngest boy, particularly during the K-2 period. Great story about the relationship between a boy and his bear as the bear begins to grow up and "cause trouble."
