5.0 out of 5 starsNice Little Fable with an Important Lesson
By Sherry Ellis VINE VOICE on July 9, 2010
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.

ByUseron January 6, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
2 baby thumbs up. Jacob loved crying bear. He learned that he shouldn't wander from home all alone that her mom would come back. Jacob liked how smart crying bear was to make a track to find her way home.

From the Author

Crying Bear is especially special to me as it is one of the first books that I wrote and illustrated. I hope you enjoy this short story, as much as I did writing it.

I love the updated version of Crying Bear by Virginia Wright. The illustrations are wonderful with the new winter scenes that go all the way to the edge of the book. I adore the splash of color with nature’s birds. There are even cameos by Timothy the Christmas Mouse (Another of Virginia’s wonderful books and companion coloring book). I greatly admire Virginia’s work as an author and illustrator and Crying Bear is no exception. The little bear feels emotions human children can relate to, including sadness, fear, and even remorse, while learning to listen to her loving mother. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BOOK!

Cute book with fun illustrations. Kids are going to love Crying Bear and enjoy the story that shows that animals have feelings and are scared and worried like we all are. The author does a great job making the story fun and interesting while taking readers into nature and getting an insight into the wonderful world of animals.

Crying Bear by Virginia Wright is a touching book about a bear who wakes up and finds it's mother gone then goes out and looks for her. Along the way Crying Bear remembers how to fish then heads back and well you're just going to have to read for yourself, I highly recommend this book.

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.

The cover on this new and improved children’s book drew me in like a magnet. Typically, blue is considered a cool shade and tends to make one feel cold, but not so with the shade of blue depicted on the cover. This blue conveys warmth and love, much like the touching story hiding behind the cover.

Virginia’s unique combination of photography and colored art brings the story to life—a story that touched me like when the mother bear lifts her paw to wipe away “Crying Bear’s” tears. Young children and mothers will love this easy-to-read touching book written and illustrated by talented author and illustrator Virginia Wright.

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!
