Mimi and Bear in the Snow by Janee Trasler


Mimi and Bear in the Snow by Janee Trasler

Wherever Mimi goes, Bear is sure to be there - whether she is ice-skating, having fancy tea with the queen, or making a scary snow monster. But when Bear gets lost, poor Mimi is heartbroken. Luckily, the snow melts and Mimi and Bear are reunited. Janee Trasler's spare text and utterly adorable artwork in this winning board book will resonate with anyone who has ever lost a beloved toy.


The softly textured, substantial shapes of Trasler's illustrations reinforce the subtle emotional narrative--just like Mimi, the pictures have a plainspoken eloquence and an intriguing dimensionality. Publishers Weekly

Trasler's gentle tale beautifully captures a child's love for a dependable, cuddly friend, no matter if it is inanimate . . . Warm and fuzzy and very reassuring. Kirkus Reviews

A sweet, charming story that young children will enjoy. School Library Journal
