Last week we announced that Gerrie Nelson’s The Christmas Bear Mystery is our Kids Corner Book of the Week and the sponsor of our student reviews and of thousands of great bargains in the Kids Book category:
The bears wake up one morning after the Christmas Season is over to find themselves in a small, dark space. At first they are frightened; they don’t know where they are. The last thing they remember . . . they were sitting under the decorated Christmas tree in the living room. Meet Chubby Charlie, the growly flower painter; Valentino, the sneezy storyteller and Snaggle, the reluctant rocketeer as they puzzle out where they could be. In solving the mystery of their location, the bears also uncover the meaning of Christmas. Colorful illustrations follow along with the plot.
