One of my most cherished memories is reading to my children each night at bedtime. I like to think it’s part of the reason they are all avid readers now, which certainly warms my heart even more! When they were little, I always looked for books that would capture their attention, inspire imagination and ones that had a sense of humor, too. MOTHER BRUCE by Ryan T. Higgins has all of these attributes and then-some!
Clever illustrations, witty text and keen insight into the world of bears makes MOTHER BRUCE a book that your family will treasure. From my experience, I know it’s a title my children would have requested to be read over and over again. I’m looking forward to sharing it with my granddaughter this Christmas and know that my daughter will create cherished memories reading it at bedtime to her little one.
About the Book
Bruce the bear likes to keep to himself. That, and eat eggs. But when his hard-boiled goose eggs turn out to be real, live goslings, he starts to lose his appetite. And even worse, the goslings are convinced he’s their mother. Bruce tries to get the geese to go south, but he can’t seem to rid himself of his new companions. What’s a bear to do?
About the Author

He has wanted to be a cartoonist since as far back as he can remember. (Actually, that’s not entirely true—he wanted to be a tiger until he was three, but, sadly, that didn’t really pan out.) Ryan’s first picture book, Wilfred, was named a 2013 Wanda Gág Read Aloud Honor Book. Visit Ryan online at ryanthiggins.com.
