Mother Bear Is A Star
It’s a good day for a publisher when a photograph of a storefront window featuring a book you’ve been working hard to promote pops open in the morning e-mail.
This journey of the life of a mother grizzly, written by Victoria Miles and illustrated by three-time Caldecott Honor Book artist Molly Bang, was published last month and has already earned some sweet buzz, including two starred reviews which we’re shamelessly quoting below.
Thanks Kidsbooks, for calling attention to this special picture book. Thanks to you, our Canadian cousins at Raincoast Books, several mother’s day promotions, and bloggers like Ritchie’s Picks who helped get the early word out, we’ve sold out of the first printing!
Note to children’s literature lovers: If you spot any Chronicle Books for Children turning up in interesting locations, please snap a pic and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll post them here.
“A beautiful introduction to these awesome animals.” –Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Audiences will be grateful for this gentle, genuine portrayal of a wilderness giant.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review
