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.
