I recently bought this book for the toddlers I work with and they adore it. The message of healthy eating is subtle and yet very effective at getting its message across to the listener. For some reason, it is very difficult to find illustrated children's book with a nutritious message, they are few and far between. So I was elated when I heard about this book. I own practically every Boutenko book out there (Raw Family was my first ever 'raw' book purchased back in 2004) and Victoria's writing never ceases to amaze me - her words effortlessly and gracefully flow across the pages with such passion, honesty, heart and purpose. I always forget I am reading a book when I read her material. And now, with her two children's books ('Fruits I Love' is her other current children's book), the young ones can experience that passion and purpose too. The pictures are very unique and have a special ability to pull you into the forest story - I could practically smell the pine needles and fresh air. This was a sweet story that is so simple in its message, however it is also so necessary for our children. Obesity and many childhood illnesses are on the rise, and books like these just shine a light of hope that there are other choices out there...healthy choices and right choices. Cheers Victoria Boutenko for creating this little gem. Hope you create more!

I think teaching kids how eat healthy foods is essential. With permission from the author, I put together this video to give you a better idea what it's about...

A beautifully written and illustrated book for children where the children receive a gift from nature from there new friend "Little Bear".
The children who had been eating processed foods find out about how delicious the wild berries of the forrest are served on a burdock leaf.
The children loved the fresh living gifts from nature. This is conscious reading for young children. Grandparents could buy this for their
grandchildren as well as parents! I am a teacher and got this book for the children in our school.

Oh the wonder of imagination! Victoria Boutenko has tapped into yet another gift of blessing others, and that is in writing
beautiful books for children of any age. I ordered this book, as well as "Fruits That I Love," for my 27 month old son. We
both enjoy it so much that I have ordered more as gifts! It is truly a delightful, and beautifully illustrated, book that we
will enjoy for a very long time.

I took a chance on this book and am very pleased I did. This story has many good morels one of which is that you can learn a lot from nature. It's rare these days to find a kids book that is not illustrated by a computer. As soon as you open "A Gift From Little Bear" you will see that someone put a lot of love into writing and illustration this book!

I highly recommend this book!

A gift From Little Bear is such a cute little story that teaches a couple of lessons. The bear takes unhealthy food from the children and gets a tummy ache. He learns from his mommy that bear's 'berry' food is good for everyone and he decides to share his good food with the children. This is a wonderful, subtle way of teaching better eating habits - and sharing!!

A Gift from Little Bear is a delightful children's story about a cub that wanders off from his mother, despite her warnings. In the woods where he lives with his family, there are plenty of berries and burdock leaves to eat. One day he hears voices from the neighboring campgrounds, and despite his mother's warnings that humans are unsafe, his curiosity wins out and he goes to the campground.

To his amazement, the humans are friendly and offer him some of their food, including a burger. He eats it and then leaves quickly when he hears his mother calling.

Returning to the woods, he develops an upset stomach from the "human food." Mother Bear explains that human food is not bear food, because bears do better on "rasp-bear-ies, straw-bear-ies, black-bear-ies and blue-bear-ies."

He returns the next day to the campground with his gifts of berries and is delighted when the children eat and enjoy his food. He runs home happily!

The story has a wonderful message without being pedantic. I think I would read it to pre-schoolers or elementary children as part of a nutrition lesson.
