Hoo Hoo the Bear hears a song in his heart and follows it on a journey that ends on the shelf of a store. Here he sits and waits with other stuffed animals until he hears a woman singing the same song. He knows in his heart that he is meant to be with her, so he jumps right into her cart.
Hoo Hoo's Song by Amanda Kleback is a sweet story of the love and comfort a bear can bring to someone no matter how old they may be. It's a story that can be extended out to lessons on friendship and even adoption, as the scene with Mr. and Mrs. B. holding Hoo Hoo together is reminiscent of a couple with a child who has recently come into their lives.
I really enjoyed Hoo Hoo's Song, and my kids did too. It's available as an e-book or in paperback. You can visit the Hoo Hoo the Bear website to read more about the story and the author, and purchase a copy of the book. Kleback has also provided some puzzles, activities and lesson plans in the Bear Den on the site.
This review was written based on a copy of Hoo Hoo's Song that I received from the author in exchange for an honest review.
