This powerful picture book shows the importance of raising your own strong voice to defend what you love.
Sasha the bear loves the meadow in her forest more than anything. But when great yellow beasts threaten to cut and burn the forest, Sasha and the other animals must find a way to stop them.
"Don't go roaring," squirrel tells Sasha. The bird tries singing sweetly. The rabbit tries thumping to distract them. The deer tries running to lead them away. But none of these things stop the machines. Must they all run and hide? Sasha the bear knows they need something louder, something bigger, something more powerful. And Sasha knows her voice--her roar--is the most powerful tool she has.
Olivia A. Cole's deceptively simple text and Jessica Gibson's vibrant art celebrate the power of learning to raise your own strong voice to defend what you love. Because sometimes you must be a bear. Sometimes you must roar.---from the publisher
