The Bearskinner: A Tale of the Brothers Grimm
Katelyn Aronson's review
Nov 14, 2017
I worked in the children's book industry for years, in several different capacities, and today I still actively collect the very best in illustrated children's books. I consider The Bearskinner to be the most powerful picture book I own. Never have I seen a picture book so honestly portray the darkness life can bring, while still championing hope and driving home the message, "No matter how hard things get, choose life. There will be a way out." What a valuable book to share with a (slightly older) child audience! I read it to 8 to 12 year-olds and they are always spellbound by Laura Amy Schlitz's rendering of this timeless Grimms' tale. And yes, there is a happy ending.
