Book Review – Faux Paw by Julia Dweck @juleloves2write
Waldon Bear is a little boy who wants to be a bear.
“That’s impossible,” says his teacher, Mrs. Hunter. “Human children grow up to be human adults, not animals!”
But Waldon refuses to listen. Can Waldon make it as a bear in school?
Will Waldon convince the other children and Mrs. Hunter that he’s truly meant to be a bear?
This humorous look at childhood will charm parents and delight young readers. At its heart, this story carries an inspirational message to believe in yourself and your dreams and for parents to believe in their children, too.
And for those who can bearly wait to learn more about bears, the book ends with Mrs. Dweck’s fun facts about bears from around the world.
