As morning breaks over a snowy landscape, a little cub eagerly starts the day. And in a snow-covered cabin, a small hunter bounces on the great hunter's bed as he too gets ready for a big adventure. But the moment this delightful parallel story progresses, the reader sees that the "hunters" are armed with cameras only, as they look for an opportunity to take a picture from a safe distance.

But little bears and little hunters have a way of wandering off. And even though their mothers take care to protect the young, it isn't long before bear and boy find themselves face to face. Then, CLICK, the little hunter gets his shot before the two go their separate ways to find their mothers again.

A rhythmic fantasy for all young adventurers ready to explore, Click! captures just the right balance of gentle humor and comforting warmth.

A Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice 2005

"The propensity 'cubs' of every persuasion have to wander away from their parents is at the core of Shutta Crum's charming fantasy of a young boy with a camera and a young bear out hunting... John Beder's illustrations of the great outdoors make for a thoroughly enjoyable confection." "Little bears and boys set out on parallel journeys with their mothers in a tale that echoes the classic Blueberries for Sal...an ideal bedtime choice for preschoolers." - The Calgary Herald "The little boy in Click! finds what he's looking for - and then some. Shutta Crum's story shows the parallels between the daily adventure of a mother polar bear and her cub, and a mother who is a photographer, and her little boy...B.C. artist John Beder paints a beautiful winter wonderland for the human and animal hunters of the book." - The Canadian Press "Children will enjoy the soft, realistic watercolors and recognize the energy and joy of life shared by the characters. Beder captures the spirit of the encounter particularly well in the spread where they meet eye to eye. Through the artwork, youngsters will also see the affection each mother has for her offspring. The text has a similar soft and loving style....a lovely book to share one-on-one or with a group." - School Library Journal "Little bears and boys set out on parallel journeys with their mothers in a tale that echoes the classic Blueberries for Sal...an ideal bedtime choice for preschoolers."
