There is your sandwich on the bench. Is it really the bear who ate your sandwich? A colorful tall tale for ages 4 and up.
This is a special poem about the wonders seen on a winter night. A perfect mix of words and imagery for bedtime reading ages 4 and up.

Inspired by the true story of Charlene Mookin–aka “Cincinnati Freedom”–this story is a fun adventure for animals lovers of all ages.
