BEAR AND WOLF by Daniel Salmieri: A Story of Friendship for Little Ones (and Older Ones, Too)

Bear and Wolf by Daniel Salmieri

I love this dreamy tale the of two friends walking together, enjoying nature and the quiet of the woods. The illustrations are stunning; grays and blues highlighted by pinks and purples create an air of mystery to the night-time images.  The double-page spreads that start the book show the forest from first the bear’s, then the wolf’s perspective.  The two walk together, enjoying all their senses in the crisp night air.  I so appreciate the emphasis on being in the present moment, and also deepening friendship through a quiet unhurried approach to life and the natural world.  Not just a winter time book, this art and language are for year-round appreciation.
