More About This Title Mr. Bears Animal Parade
Little Bear is sad when his father has to leave for work each day to deliver the mail around the forest. Mr. Bear promises he’ll return with something special for his cub. But what can a mailman like him bring back? Along the way Mr. Bear finds some old train cars, and —with an increasing amount of company along the way —he hatches an idea that will make this the most special day Little Bear has ever known. Here is a wonderfully joyful picture book, illustrated with adorable art by Keiko Kaichi, that shows how the best of all presents is our presence. This heart-warming story will resonate with young and old alike.
Keiko Kaichi was born and grew up in Japan and lives in Osaka. Her work has been chosen annually for the Japanese magazine ‘Moe’ and in 2009 her work was selected for the Illustrators exhibition at the Bologna Book Fair. She is also the illustrator of The Wolf and the Seven Kids, published by minedition.
