About the Story

Bear loves to get things done. He can make just about anything!
He even builds a wonderful den. But something is missing. What could it be?

Find out what truly makes a home in this heartwarming and deceptively simple story, Bear Make Den,  from talented trio, Jane Godwin, Michael Wagner and Andrew Joyner

Bear is a loveable, humorous and enterprising character, who sets about building the perfect home that includes all the 'bear' necessities of life. Children will delight in guessing what Bear needs next, and the feel-good ending is both joyful and reassuring.  

Andrew Joyner's adorable illustrations greatly enhance this wonderful story and Bear's facial expressions of puzzlement, determination and glee are truly sublime.  

Bear Make Den is the perfect read-aloud story, and comedian Anne Edmonds' playful reading ensures this story will become a firm favourite.
