Recently, I have had the privilege of reviewing a few children’s eBooks by Julia Dweck. Her newest book, Faux Paw, comes out 10/22 – today! Just click here to find it at Amazon.com.
This is the story of a little boy, Walden Bear, who wants to be a bear when he grows up. His teacher tells him that’s impossible, but his mother shows him that he can be anything he wants to be.
Walden’s mother sewed him a bear suit out of old fur coats.
“It’s faux fur,” she said. “That means it’s not real fur, but you can act like a real bear.”
Walden put it on and danced around the room. He was a bear!
His mother gave him a bear hug and sent him off to school.
The next day Walden shows up to school in his new bear costume along with a note from his mother which gives him permission to be a bear. He does bear things all day long at school – growling, making a den, rolling on the ground. The other children become curious, and soon the teacher is at her wit’s end.
This is another great read from Julia Dweck! The illustrations are adorable with Walden Bear in his little bear suit. The story has a wonderful message about children exploring who they want to be and learning to believe in yourself. It also have a great message to adults to let children be who they want to be and support them.
One of my favorite parts is at the end of book when the author gives all the fascinating facts about bears. Who knew that polar bears can swim 100 miles a day?
Julia Dweck has several other eBooks as well. I’ve read a few, and they are all well written with colorful illustrations. You can see all her eBooks on Amazon. Check out her web page to find out about her latest books – Jule Loves 2 Write
