Thank You, Brother Bear

Thank You, Brother Bear

by Hans Baumann Illustrated by Eric Carle

Eric Carle's brilliant collages and paintings illustrate this multicultural tale that draws from Russian, Scandinavian, and Northwest American Indian folktales. A boy's kindness to animals is repaid when they help him on his journey to find medicine for his ailing sister. Although Chip has two older brothers who are hunters, it is his animal brothers Moose, Bear, and Beaver who help him get medicine for his ailing sister.
