I loved this adorable story! Bear is such a cute character, and Tortoise is very patient with her. You can really feel the joyful energy Bear has to be out in the beautiful Spring, playing in the sun.
The illustrations are lovely, with fuzzy lines and bright Spring colors. Bear’s vibrant energy is shown through the art work, as well as the calmer quiet of the Tortoise. I just love the cute expressions on their faces!
I like that this book has a positive message about slowing down a little to enjoy the little things in life, but it never feels preachy forced. It’s a fun and charming story through and through!
