The Adventures of Berkeley the Bear

WV Author Illustrator, Berkleley the Bear

Berkeley the Bear is content to live in the Monongahela Forest with his Sugar Maple Friends. They have important jobs as state symbols, representing West Virginia. One day, Berkeley's favorite park rangers come to him with a request. Would he be willing to be a travel bear, so that others can learn about West Virginia, too?

Berkeley is just the bear for the job. There's just one problem: Berkeley is afraid to try new things. He doesn't want to leave his forest home.

Is Berkeley brave enough to share West Virginia with the rest of the world? If he is, what will Berkeley see?

The Adventures of Berkeley the Bear is 32 pages, 28 of which are full page, hand-drawn illustrations that assist in telling an engaging story promoting state pride, confidence, and friendship. Recommended for ages 7 and up.
