Bear and the Whisper of the Wind

We rated this book:


Bear has a nice home in a nice valley. He has friends who visit him, and he has a comfortable chair that fits him well. He loves to sit in his chair, and he loves the aroma of strawberry pie. But one day, the wind seems to whisper to him that it is time to move on. Bear packs his belongings in a blue blanket and sets off. Sometimes he is lonely. Soon he comes to a pretty clearing. There he meets a rabbit who invites him in. But the wind whispers again, so Bear doesn’t stay long. When a storm comes, Bear worries he has no place to go. Maybe he made a mistake, but he doesn’t know where his nice house is!

Marianne Dubuc is both author and illustrator of this quiet, sweet book. The story is compelling and will keep little listeners interested, but it is the gorgeous illustrations that are the real star of this beautiful book. Every page is filled with wonderful details of the sweet woodland. The color palette is soft and gentle. This book will be asked for over and over.
