I am Wolf! The Lost Bead is a work of fiction in the animal adventure subgenre and was penned by author Stephanie J Teer. Written as the second work in the Wild Animal Kids Club book series, the work is geared toward middle-grade and young adult readers. In this charming chapter book, we meet up with our friends from book one again as they begin to learn the secrets of wolves and the way they live within tightly-knit packs. But when a bead goes missing, the group’s bonds are tested to their maximum and they must band together with more strength than ever before to put things right again.
Author Stephanie J Teer knows how to write for young readers, crafting a truly engaging adventure story with accessible language that makes learning about nature and friendship so much fun. The five central characters deliver a variety of personality types that gel together really well, and their bonds and behaviors toward one another are realistic, but also model some really healthy ideals and dynamics of what friendships can be. I found the plot to be well-paced from chapter to chapter, with plenty of exciting moments and new information to hold the young reader’s interest, but also never so much as to make matters confusing. The wolves were a huge highlight: well-described and brought to life with a clear passion for their beauty and intellect. Overall, I would certainly recommend I am Wolf! to caregivers and educators alike as a very engaging gift for the young readers in your life.
