This was another recent children's release from the folks at Sterling Publishing, that caught my girls' attention and became a favorite in our house.  When we first starting the book and the girls saw the bear bringing friends with him to the little boy's house, they thought "Oh, I know how this is going to end."  They though the big brown bear was silly and that he didn't get the hint that the boy didn't want him stopping by.  But, then as the story went on and the bear finally listened to the boy and didn't come back, my girls started to feel sad.  They wondered why the boy didn't want the bear there, and just like the little boy, they wondered if bear would ever return.  Thankfully, the story has a happy ending with the bear returning, and this put a smile on my girls' faces.  They loved seeing the cute illustrations of the bear and little boy interacting together at the end.  
We have had this book for a few weeks, and I have lost count of how many times we have read it.  Now that my girls know how the story ends, they aren't sad like they were the first time.  Instead, they can't wait to get through the pages and have the little boy and bear reunite.  This truly is a fun and heartwarming story young children will enjoy reading, or have read to them.  We love reading it at my girls' favorite teddy bears get a few extra squeezes from my girls once the story is over.  I guess you can't say goodbye to a lovable bear. :-)

More about this recent release:

"What happens when a bear comes knocking at your door—and won’t go away?

And I said, Go home, bear.
And that was that.
But the bear came back.

Knock, knock. Who’s there? A BEAR! A furry, friendly PERSISTENT bear. And no matter how many times a grouchy little boy tries to tell him that bears don’t belong in houses, the bear keeps coming back—until, one day, he doesn’t. Only then does the boy realize how much he cares about the bear . . . and misses him. Can he find his friend again?

BUT THE BEAR CAME BACK (April 2018) by Tammi Sauer is a funny, surprising story about two unexpected pals!
