Little Bear and his Chair by Claressa Swensen
I am reviewing the 44-page children's book, Little Bear and his Chair by Claressa Swensen and illustrated by Alena Paklina. This book was published on July 15, 2018 by Claressa Swense.
Claressa has written many children's books. When she isn't writing, she is taking care of her own little bookworm. She lives in Northern Utah with her husband, baby girl, and two dogs.
According to Claress, the reason she wrote this book was not only to teach the importance of sharing and taking responsibility for your actions but also to encourage building stronger friendships and valuing those relationships over material things (the author has given me permission for quoting her).
Alena Paklina, the illustrator, is an artist based in Russia. her style differs in airiness, harmonious combinations of colors, unusual game of light and different textures. Little Bear is her first children's book and she plans to illustrate more in the future.

Little Bear has a favorite chair that he doesn't allow anyone to sit in except for himself. This causes problems when his best friend the lion sits in it one day. Little Bear gets mad, the Lion gets hurt and goes tell their friends in which leads to no one playing with Little Bear. Will Little Bear realize that his friends are more important than his chair? Or, will he choose his chair over his friends?
This book is full of beautiful illustrations that flow consistently with its color theme of reds, Browns, and greens. It has a fluidity to it that it's easy to read and follow along. I love this book because even though there is bullying in this book there is also a lesson to be learned. At the end, Little Bear did learn a valuable lesson.
i think this book is great for little children to read because it touches on sharing, bullying, and what's important. This is a book in which one will learn a lesson in.
