A Visitor for Bear by Bonny Becker, Illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton
A charming story about a grumpy loner Bear who is drawn out of his solitude by a very cute and tenacious Mouse. Its a short, heart-warming story about friendship and visiting for a spot of tea.
The watercolor illustrations are full of detail and Mouse has a lot of facial expression for being so very SMALL in relation to Bear.
This one would be good to read to a child in your lap. The details might be lost on a story time crowd.
