Sidney the bear is the first book in the Sidney the Bear series by author/illustrator, Janet Tlachac-Toonen. Sidney is out looking to make a new friend. He meets Simon the little mallard at the water’s edge. The little duck isn’t sure what kind of animal Sidney is, cause he sure doesn’t look like the other bears. The pair set off on a quest to decide what kind of animal Sidney could be. A sweet story of friendship and discovering that just being yourself is really most important. Recommended for ages 3 to 7.
