Pinkwater, Daniel. Bear's Picture, 32 pgs. Boston Houghton Mifflin Company, c2008. Language-G, Sexual Content-G; Violence-G; REVIEW: A bear wants to paint a picture, and he proceeds to do just that. He is criticized by two very fine and proper gentlemen, but the bear holds his own and guess what happens to his critics? The illustrations are great. In fact, much of the story is told not by words, but by the art. This story is not just for the younger children. - EL-ADVISABLE, Marilyn Mann, Elementary Library Specialist.
