A sweet story about making friends and playing together. For best friends ages 4 years and up.
Bear is in his room. He is sad. He wants a best friend to play with. "Go outside," says Daddy. "You'll meet a friend to play with."
Bear takes his ball and goes to the forest. But where will he find a best friend? He looks everywhere(behind the trees, between bushes, etc.).
Rabbit sees Bear and Bear says he is looking for a best friend. So Rabbit joins in on the search. Owl flies down and asks what they are doing.
So Owl joins in the search but only sees Fox & thinks she can help. Squirrel sees them and she joins in the quest to go to Fox.
Badger is the last one to join them. But when they got to Fox's house, Fox tells them Owl was wrong and she doesn't know where to find a best friend.
Bear is sad. As he sits on the rock, Squirrel tells him he is not alone, all the animals are there. Bear thinks about it and he lights up. He realizes he not only found one best friend but 5!

"A sweet, well-illustrated book about a bear who finds critters in the woods while searching for a best friend. They all help him in his search, only to realize that they ARE already all friends now." - Fiction and Furbabies Bookstagram
"An adorable and heart-warming read that follows Bear as he searches for a Best Friend. Bear's father suggests that Bear goes outside and find some friends. I appreciate how this book encourages children going outside and the emphasis on friendship. This book may serve well in introducing the topic of making friends for young children. Also, the art is gorgeous and engaging with vibrant colours and cute illustrations. This was a cute and fun read and I'd recommend this. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers (Clavis Publishing) for providing me with a copy of this in exchange for an honest review." - Books with Joy
"Thanks for the opportunity to review this book. This children's book is about searching for a best friend, but the main character actually finds multiple by the story's end! He gets help from woodland creatures on his search, only to find that he's made several new friends along the way. Short, crisp, and really cute designs. Appealing visually. Straightforward and to the point.
