Faux Paw ~ What's a kid to do with an active imagination? Find out by reading this review!

Waldon Bear is a little boy who wants to be a bear.

“That’s impossible,” says his teacher, Mrs. Hunter. “Human children grow up to be human adults, not animals!”

But Waldon refuses to listen. Can Waldon make it as a bear in school?

Will Waldon convince the other children and Mrs. Hunter that he’s truly meant to be a bear?

This humorous look at childhood will charm parents and delight young readers. At its heart, this story carries an inspirational message to believe in yourself and your dreams and for parents to believe in their children, too.

And for those who can bearly wait to learn more about bears, the book ends with Mrs. Dweck’s fun facts about bears from around the world.

My Review :
Well, author Julia Dweck has done it again.  Created a wonderfully illustrated, and fantastically exciting story that children of all ages will love.  Little Waldon Bear has a Big Imagination.  His parents teach him that he can "be anything" he wants to be and he decides that he wants to be a bear.  A Real Bear.  So, what is a parent to do?  Encourage that wonderful imagination by creating a bear costume for him to wear . . . but his teacher is not so thrilled.
What an amazingly wonderful story that teaches children to use their imaginations and that pretending can be so exciting.  My youngest loves this story and asks at least once a week to read again the story about "the boy who is a bear."  It is one that will stick in a child's mind and will quickly become a read-to-me favorite!
