A Dog Called Bear by Diane and Christyan Fox- OPTIONAL

A Dog Called Bear by Diane and Christyan Fox. PICTURE BOOK. Henry Holt and Co. (Macmillan),2018. $17. 9781627798679



Lucy wanted to get a dog, and already had everything a dog would need to be happy. A bear came and told her she was a dog, and asked to come live with her. She and Bear went home together. After a while, his bear behaviors started to wear on Lucy, and Bear starts to get tired of pretending to be a dog. Bear leaves. They each miss each other, and then are reunited.
I thought the story was cute, especially in the beginning. However, I felt it could use more detail in the illustrations, and the story line felt like it slowed a lot after she took Bear home only a quarter of the way into the book. This is a book I would not normally buy for my kids with my own money, but instead borrow it from a library if my children found it interesting.
