The Bear and the Star

Written by Lola M. Schaefer, Illustrated by Bethanne Andersen

This book is illustrated in vibrant, attractive colors. The bear sees a bright star and bellows to the four corners of the earth. Animals and people alike gather beneath an evergreen tree to view the star and create a peaceful event. This book does not mention Christmas, but it has religious undertones. This story will leave young readers asking questions about its meaning which will open up a window for discussion.
