You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

This book may be the best conversation starter of the series yet. I have enjoyed all of them so far, but this one has a beautiful way of bringing up how creative God was when He created the world. It is told by bringing up the different bears and where they live in the world and what they eat, but it can easily be brought up how people live in different places, with different foods and different looks. There is a bit of tree hugging in the mix, but it's not overdone so I didn't mind it (you know, don't hurt the earth and such). Overall this is my favorite book in the series to date!
