Children's Book Review: Don't Worry Bear
Don't Worry Bear
Written and illustrated by: Greg Foley
Published by: Viking, 2008
The star of Thank You Bear returns to make a new friend, as well as a wonderful discovery. When Caterpillar tells Bear that he is making a cocoon, Bear is worried. Will Caterpillar be safe? Will he be warm? Will he stay dry? Throughout the long winter, Caterpillar reassures him that all is fine. But the day comes when Caterpillar's cocoon is empty and Bear begins worrying all over again. Until a beautiful silk moth lands on his paw. Don't worry, Bear, he says. I'm right here. Incredibly touching in its simplicity, Don't Worry Bear reveals the very heart of friendship.
* I didn't realize that this is the second book in a series. This is a cute book about friendship. Bear worries about his little friend caterpillar....is it too dark? Too windy? Too cold? Caterpillar is very reassuring all the way to the end. This is a sweet story with simple, yet touching illustrations. We all enjoyed this story and we will definitely be checking out Thank You Bear!
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
