'Now that people live in towns and bears live in the woods, have you ever wondered what happened to the bear folk?'At bedtime Ursula asks Daddy to tell her the tale of the bear folk: special beings who can choose to be either a bear or a person, depending if they want to catch a fish or read a book. Bear folk live extraordinary lives, he tells her. They are strong and clever, kind and loving, adventurous and creative -- just like her. Will I ever meet one?, Ursula asks. Perhaps she already has... Bear Child is an inspirational story of parental love, belief and embracing individuality.
This beautiful picture book weaves together Geoff Mead's charming words with Sanne Dufft's ethereal illustrations to create a truly timeless folktale.
