As the days grow colder and the nights longer, “The Adventures of Eli Benjamin Bear” (www.pedernalespublishing.com) provides the perfect opportunity to begin a tradition of bedtime storytelling with your children or grandchildren.

This is a charming tale about a bear who needs repair on his heart and his courageous journey toward that goal, told entirely in rhyme. The story has been beautifully written by Hal Price and illustrated by Michael Bayouth.  It’s a lucky child who will find “The Adventures of Eli Benjamin Bear” underneath the Christmas tree this holiday season!
