Review quote

Praise for A Bed for Bear: "A sweet and satisfying bedtime selection." -- School Library Journal "Young readers will find McFarland's tale most agreeable, with just a few sentences per page, adorable characters, and a warm, inviting palette." -- Kirkus Reviews "Throughout, McFarland emphasizes the value of patience, taking leaps, and keeping an open mind. Readers will likely recognize what Henri does not-that his adventure was well underway long before he reached the balloon." -- Publishers Weekly "young viewers will have fun re-finding the friends who helped him along the way as well as the ones who welcome him home." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Henri's epic tale is a delightful addition to most springtime collections." -- School Library Journal "Henri's sweet there's-no-place-like-home adventure encouraging readers to 'never stop chasing your dreams' hits the spot." -- Booklist Online "Each page of Clive McFarland's Caterpillar Dreams delights readers with a colorful collage of images. Little Henri has personality to spare, and preschoolers and their parents will enjoy taking a romp with this bright-eyed, determined caterpillar." -- BookPage.com
