Book Review/Giveaway: Wise Bear William: A New Beginning. Ends Feb 29th
Wise Bear William: A New Beginning by Author Arthur Wooten and illustrated by Bud Santora.
About the Book: In Wise Bear William: A New Beginning, toys long forgotten in an attic discover that children are coming up to rescue them.
All wanting to be picked, each toy examines their own self-described shortcomings and turn to one another for comfort and advice. But the most important thing they discover is that as much as you fix things up on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that really counts.
With an emotional and surprising ending for all the toys, this heartwarming and timeless tale of love and friendship is destined to become a favorite of young and old for years to come.
My Review: Wise Bear William: A New Beginning is a well written story by author Arthur Wooten. Nearly everyone has had a toy that was forgotten in the attic or basement. In this story, when the toys heard that the children were coming to choose a toy in the attic as it was a family tradition, they couldn’t wait to get ready. With the help of Wise Bear William, who was willing to help Bean Bag Bunny, Rag Doll Rose and Calico Kitty clean up and prepare them for the children’s arrival.
The best part of this story was when Wise Bear William told the toys quote “Some of you may not get chosen today and that’s OK. It just means that it’s not your time yet.” He also remind them that even after working hard patching things on the outside, its what’s inside that counts. That is the true meaning of beauty and an important lesson for children. So what happened to Wise Bear William, was he picked by any of the children?
This story is about friendship, understanding and giving. Great illustration by Bud Santora that helps brings the story to life. Every child would love reading this book. I highly recommend it.
