Review - One Christmas Bear by Anne Vittur Kennedy

Tommy Nelson; 20 pages; $8.99; Amazon
Now available from Tommy Nelson (a division of Thomas Nelson Publishers) is heartwarming picture book Once Christmas Bear written and illustrated by Anne Vittur Kennedy.

This is a counting picture book, where every two pages focuses on a number between 1-10. The artwork on every two pages represents one illustrated scene and each pages has one sentence.

The story is pretty simple; it involves a young Christmas bear who ventures outside to play in the snow and makes several new friends, including a puppy, two tiny mice, funny foxes, squirrels, rabbits, eagles, caribous, and owls. The kids play all day in the snow, until their parents call them home near night, when the Christmas stars are twinkling bright in the sky.

Final Thoughts

This a cute little picture book with fun, colorful illustrations. The story is simple, but also very entertaining. It reminds me of the picture book One Big Turkey, which is also written by Anne Vittur Kennedy. (Read my review for One Big Turkey here!)

Overall, One Christmas Bear is an adorable picture board book about a polar bear and his arctic friends playing in the snow on Christmas Day. Young readers will love reading this story.
