Format: Paperback
Crying Bear is a nice story that teaches kids two important lesson: First, it's okay to cry (because even big bears cry), and second, don't wander off alone.

Crying Bear is the story of a little bear who awakens one wintery day to find that her mother is not around. She decides to go out to find her. Soon the little bear begins to cry. She's hungry, and she can't find her mother anywhere. Eventually, mommy bear and baby bear reunite. Mommy bear of course tells the baby bear that she shouldn't have wandered off alone. That triggers baby bear's flood of tears yet again.

I think that young children can relate to some of the feelings that baby bear experiences. This is a nice book to use to talk about those feelings. I also feel that it is a nice story to use when teaching kids the importance of staying near mommy (or daddy) and not wandering off.

The illustrations, as my eight-year-old daughter describes, are "different but cool." Many of them are photographs of snow-covered trees in the woods with the bears drawn onto the pictures. I thought that was a creative way to illustrate. There are also a couple of pages at the end of the book that kids can color.

Crying Bear is a good story to share with preschool and kindergarten-aged children.

I found "Crying Bear- Yes, Bears Cry Sometimes, Too!" a short story that teaches young ones some very important lessons. Mainly, not to wonder off alone. But this little bear was very intelligent and used his smarts to not get lost by making and following his tracks back home. I think this is a book that can help parents explain some very valuable lessons, such as listening, not to wonder off and some facts about what bears do and what they eat. I think it's a good way to ask children what they would do if they ever got lost, or couldn't find their mommy and think of alternatives. Of course, Crying Bear cries when he's scared, and that's okay, too. The pictures in this story are mainly black and white with some color for cover, text boxes, some fonts and questions, bear features, fish and water, mainly because it takes place in the winter. This book also comes with 2 pages in the back for kids to color.
This book will certainly be a helpful tool for parents to share quality time with their children in teaching them valuable lessons in life!

This comment is an amendment to my original review. It is very apparent to me that Virginia Wright is a dedicated and professional author who takes pride in her work. She recently contacted me after she read my first review and offered to send me a paperback copy of "Crying Bear". She mentioned that the ebook did not format properly on all types of Kindle Readers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for the complimentary copy which I received today. The paperback copy is absolutely delightful and it makes such a difference to see the pictures in color. The spacing errors I mentioned in my initial review do not exist in the paperback copy. Due to this fact, I am upgrading my rating to 5 stars. I will leave my original review of the ebook as follows...however, I think the paperback edition will be very much enjoyed by my grandchildren and I look forward to sharing it with them!

I like the fact that Author Virginia Wright has dedicated this children's book to her five grandchildren. I also like the fact that she encourages children to read with the Book-A-Day philosophy in mind. As a grandmother myself, I personally know how much children like to read and to be read to...as I have done my fair share of it and I'm sure they would enjoy this storybook too.

I think "Crying Bear" is a delightful little book but I will say that reading it on my Kindle probably didn't do justice to the illustrations. I think there is plenty to learn for the young reader about the natural habitat and customs of bears in hibernation. This book teaches children that, just like crying bear, they shouldn't stray too far from home and it's okay to be afraid when they do. I liked the images of bear paws in the book and how crying bear creatively used them to find his way home.

The first thing I must say is that reading this on Kindle wasn't the best experience. I moved over to my pc and read it on the cloud. There the illustrations are in color and the layout of the book works much better but not perfectly. A note at the end of one of Virginia Wright's books says it was formatted for Kindle Fire. As I don't have one, I can't speak to the layout on the Fire. There are also a couple of minor grammar problems.

I love her advice to read to your child EVERY day, and this story is definitely a read-aloud book. Some of the vocabulary would be difficult for newer readers to understand even if they were able to read the words. A parent sitting along side and explaining the vocabulary would make this accessible even to nonreaders. Kindergarteners and older children would really enjoy the new words and I think the story would hold their interest.
