Gentle Ben/ by Walt Morey

The touching story of friendship of a boy and a bear happening in a small town in Alaska. While Ben and Mark found each other to be the best friends in the world, there are always some people who will stand on their way. The most memorable parts of the book are the conversations between locals, Mark's family teaching Ben how to fish and everything about fishing season in Orca town. There is just so much in this tiny book, and it is not only about a boy and a bear! I love this bond between the father and the son: how with the help of the father a boy matures and grows to be a man; how he tries hard not to disappoint his father. This a great tale of friendship and loss, a great story of one strong family.
