Who would ever imagine a young bear could come to understand the pleasures of being read to? Wooed by a gentle voice and a loving soul, Bear does just that as The Woman reads aloud all summer long. Long after, when winter comes, Bear treasures her books and remembers the magic of listening to stories. Richard Poe narrates in a quiet, placid voice, leaving space for the subtleties of Bear's deepening understanding and The Woman's kindness to wash over the listener. Poe's pace invites one to think back to one's own special moments of being read to and hearing tales of "adventure, magic, and love." A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
