The Boy and the Bear (Sneak Peak)

The Boy and the Bear is written by Tracey Corderoy and illustrated by Sarah Massini is a delightful story about friendship.  Boy wears a knit red cap and wants to play except he's alone.   Until, a paper boat floats across the water with the word Boo! written on it.  Messages are exchanged via paper boats which I found to be a charming idea.  Boy discovers the notes are from bear, a tall blue bear who isn't very good a little boy games.  He tries without much success.  Together they build a treehouse and spend a lot of time there until the first snowflake comes.  The frozen pond has a paper boat that says Must Go.  I'm sure you can predict the ending with spring arriving.  Sarah Massini did a delightful job of color selection and the placement of these with a bright white background.
