Bunnybear Cover Image
By Andrea J. Loney, Carmen Saldaña (Illustrator)


Although Bunnybear was born a bear, he feels more like a bunny. He prefers bouncing in the thicket to tramping in the forest, and in his heart he's fluffy and tiny, like a rabbit, instead of burly and loud, like a bear. The other bears don't understand him, and neither do the bunnies. Will Bunnybear ever find a friend who likes him just the way he is?

Praise For…

"An engaging read . . . . Bunnybear will be sure to endear himself to children, and teachers and parents will appreciate the sensitivity with which the book expresses the discord between internal and external identity to young readers." —School Library Journal

"While there are many stories of mixed-up animals, this offers an assuring message of individuality: 'You just look one way on the outside and feel another way on the inside. That’s okay,' Bunnybear tells Grizzlybun." —Booklist

"The tone is gentle and hopeful. This is a good friendship story to have for young kids who may have identity issues or those who just need a little boost to stand up for who they are." —School Library Connection
