A delightful read! It’s the kind of story you’d read to a young child, and then that child would read on their own when older. It reminded me of "The Velveteen Rabbit" where the rabbit is so loved he’s “real”. I think Baby Bear must be very close to “real”. Anyone who has had a “real” friend will enjoy Baby Bear Comes Back.

Baby Bear Comes Back is a sweet, heartwarming story that both adults and children will enjoy reading. I look forward to learning about the next chapter in Baby Bear’s journey . In the words of my 7 year old son “It’s a 10 out of 10!”

Hailey Clark

The story is timeless, and the overall experience of Baby Bear encompasses the love and comfort that only familiar childhood favorites can give. As someone who still has her dear “Beary-Bear,” this tale resonates and will win over families everywhere.

Baby Bear Comes Back is an intergenerational story that reminds me of "I'll love you forever" meets "the Velveteen Rabbit". It's a charming story of a bear that comforts multiple generations through life's transitions and tough moments
