Staff Reviews

Follow the adventures of a boy and his bear as they share their day. Expressive, animated illustrations accompany easy to-read text (2-5).


— From Animals


Ben and Bear do everything together. After breakfast, they play hide-and-seek and do tricks to make each other laugh. At night, Ben tells Bear a bedtime story and Bear snuggles with Ben until he falls asleep.
The youngest readers will relate to the loving bond between a little boy and his favorite stuffed animal and how this sweet friendship makes each day special, from morning till night.
