The illustrations in this book are absolutely amazing! You could take any one of the pages, frame it, and hang it on the wall. The story features Dash, Charlie, and Theo, three bear siblings who break their mother’s prized blue seashell. They set out on an adventure to find a replacement before Mama finds out — I loved the line, “Afraid of their mama, who, after all, was a bear…” The three set out in their boat on a grand adventure that reminds me of some of the more classic stories in older picture books. I won’t give away the story, but the ending is perfect!

This is a longer story, but it would make a great read-aloud.
