Ah, travel…someday, we’ll go exciting places again. And when that day comes, young children can be prepared, thanks to Deborah Underwood’s newest book!

BEARPLANE is a rhyming, reassuring, bear-pun-filled picture book that shows kids all about airports, planes, and travel. Sam Wedelich (whose new CHICKEN LITTLE: THE REAL AND TOTALLY TRUE TALE is garnering enthusiasm and praise) will illustrate for a spring 2022 release, with the wonderful Jessica Garrison of Dial editing. 

Yay, Deborah! We can’t wait to see all the bear-eared little ones confidently striding through airports with this book in hand!
