The Adventures of Baylard Bear – a story about being DIFFERENT
Being different can be a heavy burden at any age, but for a child? Who doesn’t remember getting picked last for Red Rover, messing up your book report in front of everyone or trying to ignore hurtful nicknames?
Baylard Bear also knows what it’s like to be DIFFERENT.
When he was just a few weeks old, he was left on the steps of a human orphanage by his bear parents, who wanted a better life for him. Now if Baylard has even a prayer of being adopted by a loving human family, he must learn to do all the things human children do.
Join Baylard as he learns to embrace the world and celebrate his unique self!
This is a very nice story that any young child will enjoy. Baylard is a sweet bear, trying to get used to living in the human world. The way his feelings are explored and brought to life is very clever. The positives of being adopted are covered really well and this book could be read with children ‘in care’ to help them understand the situation a little better. It does only cover one adoption scenario so will not be helpful in every situation but where suitable it would be a very good aid to explanations about that child’s reality.
The language is simple and the illustrations are good.
I began reading this with my son but he is too young to appreciate it yet and lost interest after the first chapter (a case of me being a little to ambitious in book choice).
I would recommend this for any child aged around 5 and for adopted children with discretion as it needs to fit their circumstances.
Excellent book for its intended market.
I gave this book 5/5 stars
