REVIEWS of The Three Little Sun Bears:

The Three Little Sun Bears is a beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully authored retelling of the classic Three Little Pigs story. Readers will be transported into the tropical rainforests of Asia where three sun bear brothers live. Will their new homes keep them safe from the ferocious Siberian tiger that wants to eat them? You'll have to read to find out! Children will love this refreshing take on the story just as much as they'll love the fun facts they'll learn about sun bears, Siberian tigers, and the rainforest.
- David Barry, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Early and Middle Grades Education

Children and adults of all ages will enjoy learning about sun bears in this book that nicely depicts the setting found in a rainforest. Children will learn about the consequences of their actions as they read or listen to this delightful story. The Three Little Sun Bears supports development with a character summary at the end of the book.
- Dr. Crystal Loose, West Chester University

This engaging retelling of The Three Little Pigs will immerse young readers into the rainforest with colorful animals and beautifully depicted vistas. In addition to following along with fun text and bright illustrations, readers learn details about the animals in the book. The story, both familiar and fresh, is a clever example of how fables can enlarge our world view.

5 of 5 Fun Book That Inspires Research January 28, 2022
Reviewer: Heather from Georgia  
I was gifted an ebook version as a part of the Multicultural Children's Book Day.
My children and I read this book and fell in love with it!  The illustrations are different which my kids enjoyed.  The story itself is similar to The Three Little Pigs which was great.  
While we have seen sun bears in the Atlanta Zoo, we didn't know much about them.  
This book inspired us to dig deeper and learn more about these magnificent animals.

5 of 5 The Three Little Sun Bears January 27, 2022
Reviewer: Julie S  
A sweet take on the story with little sun bears! Lazy, sleepy bears in the rainforest. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of the bears told in the taunting replies the bears had to the tiger “not by the…” I also liked the ending where the bears actually showed some kindness to the tiger. I enjoyed the illustrations, especially how they drew the tiger.

I learned that sun bears live in tropical rainforests of Asia and are the smallest of bears. I think I’ve seen them at the Honolulu zoo as well. Again the book ends with a page teaching about the animals in the book.
