The Good Bear
The Good Bear by Sarah Lean (Simon & Schuster, 2020)

Children's

Age 9+: The Good Bear by Sarah Lean – An escaped bear, fearful of people, is woken from his winter sleep by 12-year old Thea. She’s in Norway to spend Christmas with a dad who doesn’t’ seem to know her very well, wearing winter clothes that aren’t her own, getting to know a new family she’s not sure of and missing the Christmas traditions of home. But Thea and the bear connect, and the story flows from her fingers onto an old typewriter she’s found.
