Audible Editor Reviews

Performer Owen Jordan brings his upbeat, dramatic voice to this rendition of Lynd Ward's 1952 Caldecott-winning book. A boy named Johnny is humiliated by having the only barn in town without a bear skin, but when he goes out to shoot a big one, he brings home a little cub instead. The bear grows into a nuisance, and Johnny is forced to make some hard decisions. A great listen to teach kids the importance of taking responsibility for their actions and to dissuade them from inappropriate pets.

A boy and his bear

I just loved reading this to my youngest boy, particularly during the K-2 period. Great story about the relationship between a boy and his bear as the bear begins to grow up and "cause trouble."
