My kids and I love this book! My daughter especially loves this book because she enjoys dressing up and pretend playing. She loves that this book is about a little boy who wants to be a bear and she can relate. Walden decides one day that he wants to be a bear and his mother encourages him and creates a bear costume for him. I wish I had that kind of talent, but I am not there yet! We do buy costumes when my kids find one that they absolutely love. And when they want to wear it all day long and My kids and I love this book!

And when they want to wear it all day long and even to the store, then we let them! Because childhood is all about imagination and discovery and exploring their interests.

Walden's mother encourages him in that he can be whatever he wants to be!

With the help of a homemade bear suit and a note from his mother, Walden sets out to achieve his dream of being a bear. His classmates eventually follow "suit". Julia Dwe Walden's teacher asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up? Julia Dweck has done it again with another tale that will have your children knowing the sky is the limit when it comes to their dreams.

Dweck passes along the cute subtle message to believe in yourself and you can achieve anything in life. We as parents always believe this is true of our children, it just may require a bit of encouragement now and then. The author also provides some amazing bear facts at the end of the book. This is a truly warm story that children will enjoy over and over.

After reading this my son told me he want to be a Zombie! Not quite sure where that came from lol At the end of the story as always, we have Julia's fascinating bear facts and fun animal track quiz - I was quite bad at that lol Nov 16, Susan rated it really liked it.

So, what is a parent to do? Encourage that wonderful imagination by creating a bear costume for him to wear. What an amazingly wonderful story that te Well, author Julia Dweck has done it again. What an amazingly wonderful story that teaches children to use their imaginations and that pretending can be so exciting.

My youngest loves this story and asks at least once a week to read again the story about "the boy who is a bear. Oct 21, Heather Alexander rated it it was amazing. When Walden's teacher asks the class what they want to be when they grow up, Walden's response is "I want to be a bear. Thus begins his journey. His mother encourages him in his dreams by making him a bear costume to wear to school, which in turn, encourages his classmates to be imaginative as well. The teacher is unhappy and unwilling to allow the children to have dreams. One phone call to Walden's mother changes everything.

Kids need their dreams, their imagination, they will learn as they get older what is possible or not, but for now, encourage the dreams and fantasies! Great story with a wonderful message. My daughter loved the fact that his mother let him wear a costume to school and loved the animal facts and animal tracks in the back of the book.

Nov 07, Bruce Gargoyle rated it really liked it Shelves: I won an e-copy of this book in a bloggy giveaway. As others have mentioned, this is a charming little story with plenty of kid-appeal. Who wouldn't want to turn up to school in a bearish onesie? The illustrations are easy on the eyeballs and add immensely to the overall warmth of story.

The only problem I had with the story was the unsympathetic portrayal of Mrs Hunter. All I could think while reading was "Hey, she's was a dedicated woman working in a trying profession, she's probably thinking of I won an e-copy of this book in a bloggy giveaway. All I could think while reading was "Hey, she's was a dedicated woman working in a trying profession, she's probably thinking of the bottom line, getting her kids up to standard and confronted by pushy parents when she's trying to raise an issue in the classroom - cut the lady some slack!!

Overall, this is an enjoyable and cosy read that will no doubt be requested repeatedly in the pre-bedtime slot. Feb 18, Gigi rated it really liked it. Faux Paw is an adorable book about a little boy named Walden Bear who decided that he wanted to be a bear when he grew up. Although his teacher, Mrs. Hunter, said it was impossible, his supportive mother told him he could be whatever he wanted to be, dressed him up as a bear and sent him off to school. While at school he reads about bears, digs up the school yard while scavenging for food and "hibernates" during nap time.

The next day the rest of the class comes all dressed up. When the teacher Faux Paw is an adorable book about a little boy named Walden Bear who decided that he wanted to be a bear when he grew up. When the teacher arrives to a classroom full of little "animals" she quits her job.

She is then replaced by a teacher who lets the students be who or what they want to be. The cartoonish illustrations are really sweet. The back of the book contains a page of interesting facts about bears and an animal print matching activity. In my opinion, students in preschool-grade 2 would enjoy this book. Oct 27, Tim Young rated it it was amazing.

And it's all so much fun dressed up in a Faux Fur bear suit. Our hero, Walden, has the right instincts when he becomes upset because his teacher has given him bad advice. Bad because it's negative: You can't do this, you can't do that.

The little boy always wanted to be an animal, a desire which nearly drove the teachers crazy. Unlike my nephew, Waldon won't let the silly idea that children have to act like children get him down. Waldon is a bear! This is a cute story with tons of fun and guaranteed smiles.

With the support of his amazing mother, Waldon not only learns that he can follow his dreams despite what other people might say but also leads others to do the same. I and my kids were Waldon reminded me of my own nephew. I and my kids were cheering for Waldon from the first page on. Walter Carzon's illustrations are simply wonderful. One can't help but want to jump into that bear suit and become a bear too.
