Small Bear on Large Bear's Shoulder

 

Hey Kids,

I have a friend who created a guideline of cute animals, from most cute to least. Bears aren't on it, but I'd like to think we are somewhere between owl and elephant. So for those looking to read about adorable animals, look no further. Here are some suggested titles, beginning with the cutest. 

Bear Hugs,

Anne Frank was 15 years old when her family was discovered hiding from the German Nazi's in 1944. Sadly, her whole family perished in concentration camps with the exception of her father, Otto, who later had her diary published.  She was a bright, effervescent teenager and I often wonder what she would have been like as an adult. I imagine she would have continued writing and making an impact on the world.
