This is Bear. He is flying through the air. As he flies, he remembers something his mother told him. It starts out like this: “If you ever stumble, trip and fall . . .” But he just couldn’t remember the rest. So Bear begins a journey to search for where he belongs. Along his journey, Bear stumbles and trips, jumps and ducks, but everywhere he lands belongs to someone else, and Bear just doesn’t fit in. Bear finds out that he doesn’t fit in with a fox, a mole, a goat and a duck, but he is determined to keep going, keep searching for where he belongs. Join Bear on his exciting journey and find out if he finally discovers where he feels most at home. And does Bear finally remember the rest of what his mom told him about life? Find out by reading Robert Scully’s new book “Stumble Trip Fall.”

What a cute book with a valuable lesson teaching kids to find their own way, where they are comfortable, and never give up! Through his expert writing and awesome illustrations, author Robert Scully has created a unique children’s book that will capture your child’s attention from the front to the back cover, and every page in between. The story is sweet and adorable, and I love that the author uses a Bear, because every young child loves their precious stuffed bears. But for me, the illustrations is what really tells this story. They are unique and give you that retro feeling, and are precious for small children. I love every picture in this book. What child would not love this adorable book! I highly recommend “Stumble Trip Fall” for any child’s library, as well as school and public libraries.
