Toy baskets spill, pillows move, quilts lift, and cupboards open, revealing more adventures. Toys can be put away, fruit sorted and counted, Audrey gets tucked in with Bear and the light turned out. Musical tunes, silly sound effects, bouncing and movable objects, and a kitty hiding on every page add to the fun of this ten-page story book.

Children can listen to the story or choose "read it myself" in either English or Spanish, touching individual words to hear them aloud if they need help. A navigation bar makes it easy to find a favorite page, or switch between languages.
Anna Grossnickle Hines is an award winning author of more than 60 books for children, well known for her ability to take everyday events and turn them into engaging picture books. Not Without Bear, originally published as a pop-up book by Orchard Books in 2000, which won this heart warming review on amazon: "We began reading this book to our daughter when she was probably 7 months old. She quickly became "obsessed" and demanded we read it over and over. Her first words aside from mommy and daddy were "bear" and "book". The original book has long since been pulled apart and fallen into disuse but I bought another copy and am saving it to read to her children someday."
Hines created the digital art from the original colored pencil illustrations and developed the app with the help and support of her family, from her husband Gary who does all the sound work to granddaughter Violet who provided the giggles. The Spanish translation and narration is by Gerry Dignan, "Uncle Gerry" of Music Together fame.
