When Bear wakes up one spring, he goes in search of a

new home. And he thinks he’s found the perfect place. Unfortunately, things are a bit . . . snug.

Can five little ducks find room for one big bear in their home and in their hearts?


Room for Bear explores the unconditional love of families

in all their colors, shapes, and sizes.

Praise for Room for Bear

"...[E]ndearing...the sweetly compact sentences move the

story along at a rhythmic, read aloud-perfect pacing...Fans

of Becker’s Bear and Mouse books will find a new ursine

friend (with bonus ducklings!) here."

-Bulletin Starred Review

"Gavin’s soft watercolors capture the shifting moods of the

story while taking full advantage of the contrast in size

between Bear and the ducks to maximize humor. Combined

with her understated text, they mark her a new artist to

watch.  Just ducky."

- Kirkus Reviews
