A Bear with Pants by Adam C. Warren is a fun children's book about a young bear called Bear with Pants. One of his legs is longer than the other, and so he walks with a limp. He is starting school, and so he gets on the school bus. On the school bus, he sees Snake with a Scarf, who hisses at him the entire way. At school, he waits for everyone to get off the bus before he limps off. But Snake with a Scarf is waiting for him, and trips him. Because of that, Bear with Pants is late for class and gets in trouble. Later on, he meets a butterfly, who teaches him to be courageous. The next day, Snake with a Scarf is waiting for him to get off the bus again. Will Bear with Pants be courageous enough to stand up for himself?
I really enjoyed reading A Bear with Pants by Adam C. Warren. The book is very well written and descriptive. The story teaches the importance of standing up for not only yourself, but others around you, as well as teaching that bullying isn't cool. The characters are all very likeable, because Bear with Pants is willing to forgive, and Snake with a Scarf shows that anyone can change. Many people will be able to relate to this book, because many people have been bullied. The pictures by Zack Arnett are well drawn, and clearly depict each scene and each character. I liked that all of the animals wore clothes. The story is very creative. I would recommend this to all young readers.
