for Lizard's Song by George Shannon, Ariane Dewey, and Jose Arvego
Bear discovers that singing his own song is much better than trying to copy that of a friend. A bright, flat, poster-like use of images and spaces suits this story by an Eau Claire writer. (up to 9 years)

Bear was the kind who, when he wanted something, took it. And what he wanted was Lizard's song. Lizard was happy to share it, but somehow Bear just couldn't seem to get it right. "A jolly, amiable fancy about the value of finding one's niche and being one's own self."--Publishers Weekly. Also available in a Spanish-language edition, La Cancion del Lagarto.
