"A good snuggle-time read when rain turns everyone grumpy." - Kirkus Reviews A sweet story about positive thinking. For little ones ages 5 and up. Wallow the Bear lives a comfortable life deep in the woods. But when it rains, Wallow gets sad. He becomes gloomy and doesn't know what to do. When it starts drizzling, he hunkers down in his cave. One rainy day, he hears splashes and giggling coming from outside. What can that be? He takes a peek out the window and sees owl emptying water with a bucket. More of a reason to stay inside! And then he hears more splashing and giggling. Will Wallow have the courage to come out of his cave?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A good snuggle-time read when rain turns everyone grumpy." - Kirkus Reviews "A blue bear named Wallow always gets gloomy when it rains, preferring to stay in bed, but a visit from his friend Little Cub has him donning his yellow raincoat and learning to find the silver lining of storm clouds. Mixed-media illustrations contrast the warmth of Wallow's cave with the dreary gray of the outdoors, while the rounded edges of the illustrations evoke a soft, organic feeling in this picture book about positive thinking." - Foreword Starred Review "Wallow the Bear lives in his cave, where he likes to stay on rainy days. But the rain today is extra rough, and once the raindrops come through the roof, Wallow is ready to return to bed. Until he hears laughter outside and finds his friend playing in the puddles. Wallow joins in and decides maybe rainy days aren't so bad after all. A cute story with a social-emotional component. There is also a side story told in the pictures, which I didn't notice until another reviewer pointed it out-- the squirrel gradually takes honey and waffles from Wallow and makes a feast for the squirrels. Easy concept to relate to and fun pictures (I especially love the one where Wallow is lying on the floor with a book over his face)." - Carroll County Public Library ""A Beary Rainy Day" is an adorable picture book that encourages readers to face their fears and try new things. The illustrations are colorful and fun. This would be a great picture book for library storytime." - Charleston County Public Library "I LOVE THESE ILLUSTRATIONS! I will read more Adam Ciccio just for the pictures. Beautifully done. Wallow the bear hates the rain and gets upset when he can't go outside. His friend Little Cub convinces him to go outside and he has the best time." -Lubbock Public Library "Little ones can be sad and not want to do anything, so they can relate to Wallow. The message is one that is good for kids to hear - look past the gloom and you could surprise yourself with something good. The illustrations were fitting and fun to look at. My library will be purchasing this book for our collection. " - Austin Public Library "A lovely story about how a mood can be transient if you just let yourself see someone else's perspective. The illustrations were lovely shades of blue and grey at the beginning, to reflect Wallow's mood, and became sunnier and more playful as Wallow's disposition changed. This would be a great book to read to children who are reticent to play in the rain." - Fraser Valley Regional Library
