Join us to we celebrate local author Sarah S. Brannen's new release, Bear Needs Help. A lumbering little polar bear has one shoe untied, and he needs some help! Sadly for him, though, the other animals are all too scared of him: the lemmings, rabbits, and seals all run away as he approaches them for assistance. What's Bear going to do? Luckily, two plucky birds are more than happy to help out and offer advice -- though probably not quite in the way that readers anticipate. In this sweet and funny book about asking for help (and receiving it), expectations are flipped in a simple but clever way. “Laced with humor and…decipherable in more ways than one.”—Kirkus Reviews Sarah S. Brannen is the award-winning illustrator of 20 books for children, including one of our store's favorite books, Feathers: Not Just For Flying, by Melissa Stewart. She is the author and the illustrator of Madame Martine, Madame Martine Breaks the Rules, and Uncle Bobby's Wedding.
