    I liked, Dreaming the Bear by Mimi Thebo because of the connection between the bear and Darcy. I think that she would have put up more of a fight at the end.

    Dreaming the Bear is a beautiful book with lots of meaning behind the words. I fell in love with the relationship between Darcy and the bear and the trust they had in each other. It dips in and out of her own imaginary world which for some readers may be perplexing. As the story carries on we are introduced to new characters such as her brother, brother’s friend and her parents, as well as the wounded bear and how she meets her. This is certainly a moving book and made me cry a river! However I fully advocate this book to P6 and P7. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars!
