Southern-born Evelyn Scott was one of the most highly touted literary figures of the 1920s and 1930s. The Fourteen Bears stories were her only children’s books.
Virginia Parsons illustrated several Golden Books in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Once upon a time, in a summer forest, there were fourteen bears . . . so begins a sweet story of a bear family’s life throughout the year, told in loving and simple detail. This book features two popular stories written by noted Southern author Evelyn Scott, and has been out of print for decades. We’re pleased to reissue this book in response to the requests of several booksellers, and hundreds of people who want it for their children
and grandchildren.

  • One of the best children's books ever published

    Our first copy of this book was purchased about 30 years ago. It went thru 3 children and 1 grandchild, who all loved this book read to them at bedtime, anytime. So it has seen the ages of time. We now have another grandchild and I wanted a new copy of this beautiful book, and my first place to look was O.com and there it was. It is a bit smaller (8x10) in size than the first copy (12x11). Yet still a good size, and it is still a hardcopy with a protective jacket, still has clear, bright, vivid colors, with the 14 wonderful characters that can still capture a child's (and adult's), heart and imagination. It's a fun story told through creative humanism about the lives of a family of 14 bears and how they spend their time in the summer, and in the winter. It's filled with fun, colorful, funny stories about their activities, their personal likes and dislikes, and their interactions with one another and their environment. Every child should have this book. I'm not sure who loves it best...child or parent. No one will be disappointed when they purchase this book.

  • On The Fourteen Bears In Summer And Winter

    A great book that was part of children's early years and then it went out of print. This smaller size comes just when we needed it for our grandson and friends. We all love the story and illustrations.
