Synopsis

How to Share with a Bear by Eric Pinder

The perfect thing to do on a chilly day is to make a blanket cave. But, of course, a comfy cave never stays empty for too long...What's a boy to do when a bear takes over his cave? Try to distract him with a trail of blueberries? Some honey? A nice long back scratch? How to Share with a Bear is a story about how although it's not always easy, sharing with a sibling can make things even more fun!

Reviews

Pinder employs accessible, descriptive language to lead Thomas to his generous conclusion, without becoming preachy or cloying. Young readers may be surprised at the identity of the bear, but there are several visual hints and lots of delightful details to be found in Graegin's illustrations. Glowing shades of yellow, blue, and bear-brown on a soft, light sepia background surround satisfyingly legible text. Tender and charming. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review This wry look at sibling relationships is also a sly celebration of low-tech fun. This is a lovely, comic acceptance of how difficult, yet rewarding, having a sibling is. --Booklist Pinder employs accessible, descriptive language to lead Thomas to his generous conclusion, without becoming preachy or cloying.
