Horrible Bear!

Spring 2016 Picture Books
Ages: 2 - 6 yrs.
ISBN: 978-0316282833
Hardcover Price: $16.99

The foolishness of a temper tantrum, the realization of a mistake, the power of an apology, and the ability of a friendship to fix almost anything.

Ame Dyckman's story and Zachariah OHora's bright illustrations are an irresistible force in conveying how an accident (Bear didn't mean to break her kite) sparked a hissy fit (Horrible Bear!) which in turn caused a downward spiral (a Horrible Bear idea) and how a heartfelt apology (I'm sorry) melts away anger and hurt feelings. To be read again and again.
