In a Minute, Mama Bear

Written by Rachel Bright

In a Minute, Mama Bear Synopsis

In a Minute, Mama Bear is the first book in a new series from Rachel Bright, creator of the popular Love Monster series. In this heartwarming story, Mama Bear is ready to start her busy day, but toddler Bella is lagging behind. There are errands to do, classes to get to, and lots more. Mama is raring to go. And Bella is . . . moving . . . very . . . slowly. Finally, Mama Bear decides to throw the to-do list out the window and spend the day playing and relaxing with Bella Bear. In this warm and relatable story about a day in the life of a mother and young child, we see that sometimes when things don't go as planned, that's when the most fun happens.

In a Minute, Mama Bear Press Reviews

Adorable art, gentle humor and relatable situations make this tender and jubilant story one to read and reread. --The Washington Post Bright handles the very real issue of the over-scheduled family with good humor and sympathetic characters, drawn in her signature scraggly style, which is as expressive of harried domestic life as the text itself. She also ends with a satisfying role reversal--after Mama hops on the bandwagon, it's little Bella who tells Mama it's time to go home. --Publishers Weekly A solid message to caregivers about the value of unstructured time with their children. --Kirkus Reviews
