From the time that he was just a young cub, Bingo has always been
musically inclined. In fact, the only thing that he wants to do more than sing and
dance is have a banjo to play; that way, he’ll be free to strum on it all day long,
making all kinds of music and singing all kinds of songs.
So imagine Bingo’s surprise when he goes fishing

Jay Miller has cleverly written an animal story for children, woven with a sweet message of family. This charming book is written in rhyming verse which I love to read out loud to my Grandsons. Let me give you an example of Jay's opening page:
"When Bingo was a bear cub, he use to sing and dance, and he would shake a leg, like he had ants in his pants."
Bingo the banjo picking Bear will entertain children from 9-12. The illustrations by Bobbi Switzer are well done and quite animated. The pictures

Bingo The Banjo Picking Bear – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat

Bingo is a young bear, with music in his soul, who believes that fish are like genies and will grant your wishes. Bingo's wish is to have a banjo so he can make up songs and sing them to his Grandpa. Will the fish grant his wish?

This is a sweet little book, with beautifully done artwork, that will have just about any child making up their own tune to Bingo’s words. I actually found myself doing just that.

I chuckled my way through this little book. Amusing drawings highlight this tale as one bear finally gets his wish, a banjo to pick and strum with abandon. This story is reminiscent of the lion and the mouse, the small creature who was spared by the lion and repaid the favor with his own act of kindness. Absolutely delightful.
