Item description for Goodnight Dewberry Bear by Dori Chaconas & Florence Davis...
Overview Dewberry Bear was having a hard time getting ready for bed. In his room the evening shadows stretched like long, dark gorilla-fump fingers or the snout of a big and hungry rattle-gator. Mother Bear suggested that Dewberry say a prayer he was learning and Dewberry tried - he really did, but somehow the right words just would not come. But his mother teaches him that it's not important to know the exact words to pray. The important thing is to remember to pray. A sweet story for any child who needs reassurance at bedtime.

More About Dori Chaconas & Florence Davis
Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1938. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.
She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 44 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons--especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.
When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.
In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.

Goodnight, Dewberry Bear presents a charming introduction to bedtime prayers. It's humorous made-up "monsters" kept me laughing while delivering the important message of prayer. Dori Chaconas' writing is engaging and inspiring....a true treasure in our family library.
