There are many children’s book titles that live on my list of all time favorite books. Surely the many memories of snuggling up with my children over the years contributes to my love of children’s literature, but there are other reasons as well! There is something wonderful about finding a gem of a story, or rich and cheery illustrations, and being able to put that book into the hands of a child.
A new book that I am excited to have on my shelf is this one…
One Christmas Bear, written and illustrated by Anne Vittur Kennedy.
This counting book is delightful and cheery. Arctic animals and pops of color on a cold snowy background make for charming, uncluttered illustrations. Rhyming text tells the number story from 1 to 10 in a simple yet fun style.
