Baylard Bear knows what it's like to be different. When just a few weeks old, he was wrapped in a blanket of moss and left on the steps of a human orphanage by his bear parents because they realized they weren't going to be able to give him the life he deserved. They made the hardest - and most unselfish - decision any loving parent can ... they gave their beloved baby boy up for adoption.
Follow Baylard as he comes to terms with his unique skills and setbacks, eventually gets adopted and ventures out into the big wide world!

The Adventures of Baylard Bear is a book that I will be using with third graders to achieve their adoptions of Beanie Babies along with reading and writing activities. This is a project that I’ve been doing for a number of years, but this is the first time that I have a book that relates to so many concepts related to adoption, feeling different, unconditional love, acceptance, etc. Even though one reader felt this book did an injustice to some topics, I would say that The Adventures of Baylard Bear opens many doors for discussion. After all, it is up to the adults sharing these stories to create the right impressions for the concepts shared with their children. Baylard gives us the opportunities to deal with issues that otherwise might be too complicated. I do wish that the book could have had more detailed and brighter illustrations. The ones in the book could be used as a coloring book, I guess. But in sharing this with a group, I would have children drawing their own illustrations as I read it because the pictures won’t hold their attention…but the story sure will. This book was given to me for writing a review. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
