Why do we love this book?

Occasionally, a book comes through our office that touches everyone’s heart. The tale of Little Brown Bear is one of those stories. You could classify this as an adoption story. But really, it’s so much bigger. This is the story of a how a little boy from Ethopia came into the lives of a loving family. And how he came to be, their Little Brown Bear.

How was this book designed?

Simple and elegant.The words in this book are so powerful that a consistent color scheme is all it needs to bring the story to life. We do love the use of translucent backgrounds to house captions. But what we love most, is that the design doesn’t draw away from the star: Little Brown Bear.


What makes this book so special?

Everything about this book is special. We love the dialogue and the simple explanations of complex issues in life. In truth, this is an adoption story. But really, this is the tale of how a little boy found his people. Can you finish this book without crying? What’s your reaction? Share it here.

 Here’s what Heather had to say about her book:

This is a book written for our adopted son to help him know his story. It is similar to a baby book, but if we made a typical baby book, there would be many parts missing. So this is our way of letting him know how and where he belongs. This book was several years in the making, but now that it’s finally done, I couldn’t have imagined a better reaction! When my son finally received his gift (right after Christmas), he made sure everyone saw it.  He practically has it memorized already.
