A Song for Bear

Gabby Dawnay, Alex Barrow


From the author-illustrator duo behind the bestselling If I Had a Dinosaur, an outstanding picture book that celebrates what makes us unique

See Inside


One day Bear decides he will sing with the birds –

He has heard every tune and he knows all the words.

But as hard as he tries to fit in with their song,

When he opens his mouth it comes out sort of wrong.

Each creature is different, that’s just how it goes,

But will Bear ever realise what’s under his nose?
