Picture Book Review: The Bear in the Boat

The Bear in the Boat by Owen Hart

The Bear in the Boat
by Owen HartCaroline Pedler (Illustrations)
5 out of 5 stars

While the rains begin to flood the forest, Bear has a plan for helping all her neighbors to weather the storm. But when the floods begin to reach her own house, Bear will need everyone’s help to get her boat afloat and save her friends.

This was such a sweet story about friends and neighbors helping one another in a crisis. I loved the Bear is super-organized and loves to help everyone and problem solve. I also thought it was important that the animals she helped thanked her and accepted her help graciously, and then were willing to help her when she needed it.

I love the soft art style of the illustrations. There are such pretty details in the fur of the animals, and the little plants on the forest floor, and each little blade of grass or blossom. The animal characters have the cutest little expressions on their faces! Just adorable.
