A cautionary tale using words made up of only the five letters in the title (B, E, W, A, and R). Can a bear and a bee become friends?
Abe and Bree aren’t supposed to get along. When they meet, they panic. Abe swats! Bree stings! Now they’re both hurt. Together they figure out how to find friendship despite differences and preconceived notions. This rare-bear, wee-bee tale helps to create a web of understanding with unique language and a clever structure.
