Black Bear, a delightful tale for children, is the story of a little bear who misses out on dinner over and over again because he lets his friends talk him into eating dessert first— blueberries! The blueberries are delicious, but they don't keep the bear's tummy full for very long, and by the time he has slept off dessert, the salmon are gone, and he is hungry long before it is dinnertime again. Black Bear, written by Marcela Hubbard and vividly illustrated by Ivonne Draper, is a story that will entrance the very young and charm the rest of us. Marthy W. Johnson, copy editor and writing instructor.
