The Bear, the Box and the Boy is an uplifting adventure about a bear's search for his beloved boy. He explores Dinosaur Land, Under the Sea, and Outer Space, and learns to follow his heart.

This comes autographed by the author/illustrator! Please include one or more child's name in the personalization box if you'd like the author (me) to personalize an inscription to a specific child (I'll write the child's name in the front of the book and write them a brief message, the book will not include the child's name in the content).
Back of the Book and Reviews:


"The bear and the boy played all day long until they fell asleep inside their box. When the bear woke up, the boy was gone. Follow the bear as he travels through the boy's imagination in their magic box. In his search for the boy, the bear learns to follow his heart."

"Moms will really enjoy and be warmed by The Bear, the Box and the Boy as they read it and explain it as necessary, and kid’s imaginations will soar to the story and be comforted by the repeated phrases. Both will be comforted by the lovely ending. The water color and ink illustrations carry the story along simply and beautifully. A truly remarkable work! I was really touched."

"I bought this book for my little ones to open on Christmas Day and when we read it the first time my 4 year old son promptly told me, "Read it again mommy." It is a wonderful and heartwarming story that any child would love be a part of, full of adventure and written just right for kids. The next day my 2 year old daughter also brought it to me and asked me to read it. It is now a favorite in our home."

Absolutely gorgeous. We are so in love with the finished product, and it came so quickly!! I can't wait to have Taryn do a few more portraits. I can't recommend her work highly enough.

I just fell in love with this perfect tiny painting. It spoke to me and I lusted after it for about 6 months and I just had to buy it. It looks beautiful in my Coastal Cottage on an antique round table next to a Tiffany style lamp. LOVED it so much more in person! Great communication & I ordered several more hand painted pieces.

Wow! There are a lot of options and imitations on Etsy, but I couldn't be happier with the skill and detail of the 8x10 house portrait from the SkipperBay shop! Taryn is kind and extremely talented and I will be back for more! My highest recommendation!
