Holiday Gift Guide | Sister Bear A Norse Tale Review

Title: Sister Bear: A Norse Tale

Author: Jane Yolen

My children love books by author Jane Yolen and Sister Bear-A Norse Tale is a delightful addition to our Christmas book favorites. With beautiful illustrations by Linda Graves accompanying the rich text, this story of a young girl in Denmark really comes to life on every page. It is a wonderful holiday fairy tale that transports my children and I to another land far away and it is rich with culture and tradition. My children literally sat wide-eyed and captivated as I read this exciting adventure story to them which is filled with trolls, a white bear and a wooden flute. I appreciate that it exemplified the meaning of true friendship and loyalty and it is sure to be a story that is read in our home year after year during the Christmas season.

*I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this novel.*
