The Other Bears

Written by Michael Thompson


Mother and Father Koala are suspicious of the OTHER bears. They don’t like the pandas and they don’t trust the polars. The black bears are noisy and the brown bears have big teeth. But all their grumpiness melts away, watching the littlest bears at play.

‘A fun tale about tolerance and acceptance.’ Nurture Magazine

‘Thompson has created a timely tale of love and acceptance, without undue moralising.’ Child Magazines

‘The message here suggests that it is perhaps through the young that the fear of differences can be overcome. What do you think? Highly recommended.’ Reading Time
