Mother Bruce

1484730887.jpgBruce, a bear who lived by himself, didn’t like many things, especially cute little animals. When one of his egg recipes goes wrong, he finds himself with four goslings who calling him “Mama”. These goslings take their imprinting so seriously that they don’t even fly south when other geese do. Instead, they adapt to the cold weather. Mother Bruce, though, has different ideas about southern migration, and the end is a surprising compromise.

Written and illustrated by Ryan T. HigginsMother Bruce is a fantastic read with many opportunities to go beyond the text. Talk about Mother Goose, for example, or study the winter habits of bears and geese.
