The lovely story of Shelter was written by Céline Claire and the adorable illustrations were done by in Leng Being compassionate is one of the major lessons that kids will learn from the story Aside from that the value of friendship is important than material and impermanent things were also addressed in the story This is a recommended read for kids 7 and below but adult readers such as parents will also appreciate this charming book

Nd watercolor illustrations creating a charming and inviting visual narrative that is perfect for young children This book provides a wonderful opportunity for discussions about being welcoming and helping others in need including how children can put this into practice by reaching out to the “new kid” or the one who seems different It also works well for character education lessons on kindness caring and empathy. Not sure if this is supposed to be a reflection on global warming and of the refugee crisis and how the media treats and thinks about refugees as the main characters are polar bears looking for a place to stay to survive the storm but if so its a sound picture book to introduce children to this topic Maybe not as impactful as The Journey but still a resonating picture book nonethelessAlso the illustrations of the animals are adorable

    I wasn't sure if I liked the illustrations in this one at first but they grew on me This is a cute story about generosity with woodland creatures playing the roles When two strangers come to the woods during a storm nobody wants to help them even though they are in a position to But when the tables are turned a family is taught an important lessonThe story is poignant but simple enough for kids to understand And the illustrations of all the animals in their various shelters and clothes are really cuteI'd definitely give this one a try if you like picture books with a good message

    This is a gentle fable originally published in French that contains beautiful and absorbing artwork full of earth tones and winter blues In a forest neighborhood a storm is coming The animals get ready but when a pair of strangers show up asking for shelter from the cold they receive very mixed reactions but as the storm worsens one family finds themselves needing shelter too Different people will probably take different messages from this story some reviewers see a possible climate change statement here since the visitors are polar bears but for me the takeaway is that the best way to receive is through giving and that compassion can breed compassion I thought the story was well told Sometimes the important the message the easier it can be for storytellers to communicate in heavy handed ways but I believe that was mostly avoided here because the story can stand on its own I assume the heart of this story is related to the current global refugee crisis and if that's the case then this is a timely story indeedThanks to NetGalley for the review copy

    When the woodland animals realize that a winter storm in coming each family prepares its store of food and shelter in order to be ready Cozily ensconced in their homes they then witness two bear strangers approach Each time the strangers ask for aid offering something in return they are rebuffed until finally the fox father offers them a lantern When the fox family's den collapses under the snow that act of kindness is than repaid by the two bears who share their tea and temporary shelter with the now homeless vulpine familyOriginally published in French as L'abri this lovely Canadian picture book teaches an important lesson about compassion and kindness demonstrating through the story that our good deeds often come back to us in unexpected ways and that the person needing help today might be the one offering it tomorrow Author Céline Claire's story is engaging and illustrator in Leng's artwork beautiful Not surprisingly given my fondness for wintry scenes I enjoyed the snowy vistas best and liked how in contrasted the cold whiteness of the snowy world with the warm yellow of the bears' fire Recommended to anyone who enjoys beautifully illustrated picture books as well as to those looking for children's stories about compassion

    A beautiful book with a beautiful theme of kindness to others As a storm rolls in animal after animals denies shelter to two lost animals until finally in a reverse of fate some animals need shelter and ask the bears for help which they provide An excellent book to talk about kindness and helping other and not being afraid I'd highly recommend pairing it with the new book Leaf by Sandra Dieckmann that is set to come out around the same release date to make a unit of kindness picture books Love Love Love Highly recommend This book was provided by Kids Can Press for an honest review
