Little Bear and the Wish Fish by Debi Gliori


Little Bear and the Wish Fish by Debi Gliori

The bears of Papana River Valley lead a charmed life: they fish, they hunt, they sunbathe. But that doesn't stop them complaining. So the Raindancer, the Sunblazer and the Snowmaker send a Wish Fish to teach them a lesson they will never forget! How the bears learn to count their blessings is delightfully portrayed in this endearing cautionary tale.


How the bears learn to count their blessings is delightfully portrayed in this endearing cautionary tale. A cautionary tale about not taking the good life for granted with a skilful mix of illustrative lines and text. School Librarian The illustrations are an exuberance of colour and vitality with many details to look out for that add to the story. Carousel

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
