Determined to understand the words on the page of a found book, George the bear ignores advice and heads into town in the hopes that he can find the owner of the book, and that they’ll teach him to read. He eventually finds a brave, kind and determined little girl called Clementine who helps him realize his dream. George’s story, his very own exciting story, one of determination, prejudice, the joy of reading and friendship, is all wrapped up in a humorous and gentle package. The illustrations are just beautiful and those familiar with Emma Chichester Clark’s work will recognize her signature style. Bears Don’t Read! is a magical story to encourage children towards a lifelong love of reading.
