Not So Scary Bear

Ruth Waters book is fun, celebrates difference, and the importance of being true to yourself.  This well paced adventure saw me instantly charmed by bear; I love that he wears patterned woolen jumpers and behaves the opposite of what is expected of a bear.

Introducing Teddy – A Story About Being Yourself

Regardless of whether you agree with the content in this book, all bears, children and adults should NEVER feel ashamed about who they are.  I am a Christian and I am not ashamed of that so why should someone who is a different race, wears glasses, lives with Asperger’s, ADHD, physical differences, being scared, not being able to read or write, or just like bear…no longer being happy as Thomas but finding joy and peace in being Tilly.
