A Bear In My Sky


Five rhyming stories about a teddy bear and beloved child together trying to understand their new world - a rare find of a book. 

This book is meant to be read by parents and grandparents to their children.


A Bear in My Sky is simply perfect. It is so good, the adult who is reading it to a kid, will wish to be the child! Magical, enchanting, -- no superlative is too much, this bear belongs among the classic bears of children's literature, for a whole new generation of grandmas, grandpas, parents and lucky children.

When you read these poems, you will become "cousin-bonded in a common fate... partners in high altitude adventure." Her work will take you through all your ages, first and lasts. She drives you through steep canyons and rocks you in lilting oceans, leaving your landscape wider and broader than when you started. Between these covers is joy! - Mary Slocum, poet, activist, writer.
