|What do you get when you cross a coloring book with a storybook? A way for the family to relax and create together.
When the business of the day is through and it’s time to slow down but not quite time for bed, pull up a chair, bring out the colors and spend some time reading, relaxing and relating. You aren’t just coloring pages. You’re making memories.
The Way of the Bear is a book about the sacred relationship between giving and receiving with gratitude. As the Mother Bear teaches her cubs the importance of being thankful to the Salmon People, the reader is shown how necessary respect is for true gratitude. The Mother wants to give her cubs important things about which to think and the reader is asked to take that same journey.
On top of the story, you also get 44 pages of beautiful pictures to color. The book is designed so that the detailed pictures are on the right-hand page for adult colorists (great for stress relief!) and simpler drawings of animals are on the left for the kids.
