One day bear finds a carrot om a rock outside his cave. 'It smells nice. It might be good to eat. It is crunchy. It tastes good, too! Yum!' says bear. Bear is delighted with his discovery.

The next day bear finds two carrots outside his cave. And so it goes. Each day more carrots and then some blueberries appear. Obviously, bear has a secret friend. He decides to reciprocate by leaving some tasty treats, like honey and a candy bar, on the rock for whoever is leaving him his delicious goodies.

Will bear eventually meet this secret friend? Of course, but you'll have to read this picture book to learn who that person might be. This charming and nicely illustrated story about the unexpected kindness of a secret admirer will touch the hearts of young and old readers alike. Don't be surprised if Bear in Love becomes an instant hit in your household and ends up on the list of favorite bedtime reads!
