Adam believes that teaching right from wrong at the earliest possible opportunity of a child’s life is a gift he wanted to use this book to give.

Most important to Adam is his family. The girls are why the sensitive topic of bullying was chosen although Adam is no stranger to bullying. As a child, he recalls being chased and even having a rock thrown at his face knocking out one of his front teeth. Both of his girls have dealt with bullying during their academic life and may see more of it before they are done.

Adam has tried movie making to music production. The idea of telling a story to children with creatures in various types of clothing is a new frontier for Mr. Warren. He is already dreaming of the next book.

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.

What a fun book! The first thing that caught my eye was the artwork, and that it was about bears - I love bears! But it was story that really captured my heart. I love how the kids learn to come together and to believe in themselves (and their own unique talents!) to deal with the bullies at school. I got the impression this was written by a loving parent for their own kids and I'm glad they decided to share it with the rest of us! Definitely worth adding to your library!
