Normally I wouldn't have paid much attention to this cute little story about a game of hide and seek. Here's why I point it out to customers: a) the story specifically refers to three animals as "she" even as b) the illustrations are 100% ungendered. 

This makes this book unique in my experience. What -- female animals exist? But no pink, no bows, no lipstick, no long eyelashes?? Just a bunch of (anthropomorphized) animals playing together? Yes, please! 

Where is Bear is high-quality in every aspect, even its binding and materials. The rhyming story is simple and appealing to young children. And the illustrations are really great.
