Reviews - What do customers think about The Miracle of the Bears?
An excellent way to broach the subject with young children. May 13, 2007
Winner of the 2006 Hans Christian Andersen Award, The Miracle of the Bears is a simple children's picturebook about the beginnings of new life, skillfully translated from the original German by Michael Reynolds. When a bear wakes up from his long winter sleep, he finds himself yearning to have and raise a family of his own. But how does he find one? Where do bear cubs come from? He asks advice from animal friends but none of them seem to have the answer. When he asks a stork, she replies, "I go hunting for frogs, and I spend winters in Africa. I don't do anything else!" At last the bear meets a girl bear who may have the answer to his question. While the graphic details of the facts of life are never given in The Miracle of the Bears, it is an excellent way to broach the subject with young children. Also highly recommended is "The Big Question", another illustrated title by award-winning author Wolf Erlbruch.
