When the elder Mr. Bear leaves on an errand, Edith and her companion, Little Bear, set off to explore the empty house together. Bear, who bent the doll and little bear over his knee and spanked them with his paw. The fashion designer Anna Sui, whose iridescent baby-doll dresses ignited her career, reportedly spent a decade tracking down a copy of the book, which she remembered from childhood. First editions can fetch hundreds of dollars. Wright, who was born in , in Ontario, and raised in Cleveland, worked as a child actor and model for fashion magazines before becoming a photographer herself. She shot editorials for publications like Good Housekeeping , converting a closet in her West Fifty-eighth Street apartment into a darkroom, and in her spare time she made glamorous self-portraits in gowns and costumes she had sewn.
Autumn means monarch butterflies migrating from Canada to Mexico and this vibrant picture book celebrates the amazing annual occasion with lyrical text in both Spanish and English to read or sing! It pays tribute to one monarch butterfly, and the many like it who travel together, pollinating flowers along the way. It captures how those of us in the city or desert my favorite spread! And finally, it encourages love and care for the world around us, for these creatures who are part of a vast ecosystem that connects us all. The above spread in particular shows people doing just that through a community garden. I love the way the text shows the lyrics in both English and Spanish and alternates in terms of which one is sort of singing lead while always including translated text on each spread. Big thanks to Penguin for the review copy and images!

I read this probably in elementary school which was about 15 years ago. Does anyone had a suggestion they could throw out so maybe I can look through a try to find it?
