Where Is Bear?
Illustrated by Valeri Gorbachev
Published by Harcourt Books, August 2004
Ages 2 to 5

The animals are playing hide and seek in the forest, but Bear, the biggest one of all cannot be found. Is Bear hurt? Is Bear sick? Where could Bear have gone? One thing is certain: his friends will do whatever it takes to find him. Told in verse and illustrated with charming animal characters, this is a great read-aloud story.

Where is Bear?

Why I wrote this book
I loved playing hide-and-seek as a child, and thought it would be fun to write a book where animals of the forest played my favorite game and to make up fun hiding places for them.
