The Next Door Bear by Mary Kuryla and Eugene Yelchin - OPTIONAL
This had potential to be a really cute book, but it failed on all accounts. The writing was confusing and choppy. The dialogue of each character was separated by only a colon making it a hard book to read aloud. The illustrations were confusing as well because at some points the kids looked like giants and it was too busy. EL-OPTIONAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
