A Crying Bear?

A Crying Bear?

Crying Bear arrived less than an hour ago.

Now where did I put that bear cage? 

Nah, all I had to do was . . .

open an envelope, and pull out Virginia Wright’s latest paperback edition of Crying Bear: Yes, Bears Cry Sometimes, Too!  

After running my hand over the glossy cover, I flipped to page one and read a delightful, easy-to-read story about an adventurous little cub that wakes up during a long winter’s nap.

Little children who have wandered off from their “Mama Bear” will be able to relate, and they will fall in love with this poor little cub that has lost her mother.

I can just imagine Crying Bear’s thumping heart. Her mother is gone. And she is one hungry bear cub.

It’s a good thing Mother taught her some survival skills.

Hmmm . . . I wonder—

  • Will Crying Bear put those survival skills to the task?
  • Will Crying Bear find food?
  • Will Crying Bear locate her mother before it gets dark?

To find out what happens, please grab the paperback edition of Crying Bear by clicking on this highlighted link, and then join this very adventurous little bear as she wanders too far from the den in the snow covered mountains of Maine.

I almost forgot to mention that Virginia Wright’s unique photography and art also helps to bring this touching children’s story to life.

P.S. Virginia could really use some encouragement today, too, as her younger brother passed away unexpectedly last week.

  1. In about a months time,the Sows will be chasing off their cubs.If you want to hear what a cub sounds like crying just come around then.It’s one of the saddest sounds I’ve ever heard.

    • Hi Wayne, I haven’t heard a cub crying, but my imagination says I’ll hear sorrowful heartbreaking sobs. I assume you’ll be posting sow and cub photos soon? Thanks for popping in.

  2. Thank you, Tracy. It was so thoughtful of you to create this post promoting Crying Bear. Thank you to your followers who also shared this post. Crying Bear was a special story to me, and the release was near the time I lost my baby brother. I postponed the release until I felt I could do it. I had no idea my brother was sick, not that anyone can ever prepare for a loved one passing away, but when someone is sick over a long period of time, you know it is coming, with my brother, I had no idea he was sick so it was a complete shock and harder for me. Your thoughtfulness here is overwhelming and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Xoxoxo
