Archie and the Bear
Hardie Grant Egmont
Adults and children alike will immediately recognise this familiar story. The two main characters learn about being open to others and seeing things they have in common despite their differences. The two characters are a boy who claims to be a bear, and a bear who claims to be a boy. Willingness to accept others while respecting differences feature in this picture book’s effective collage-style images and pencil drawings.
