 Is it ever too late to try something new? Find out in this endearing, bittersweet story about an unlikely friendship. 

When a young couple put their new fern in a room with a happy-go-lucky stuffed bear, nobody expected that the result would be a bond that would last through the years. 

But while Bear is anxious to take nighttime walks and explore the world around him, Fern is content to stay in her spot, convinced that she can't move because she's a potted plant - and as everyone knows, potted plants can't move. 

A story about the enduring strength of good friendships, the importance of trying new things, and the belief that it's never too late to make a change, "The Bear and the Fern" is beautifully illustrated and guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. 

From the author of the best-selling book, "Ricky, the Rock that Couldn't Roll," this latest title is sure to be a favorite of any child between the ages of 3-11. It combines the rhythm of Dr. Seuss, the heart of Shel Silverstein and the playfulness of Mo Williams.

Perfect for all children ages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and up, and Pre-K -5th grade.
