M – Mother Bruce


Mother Bruce written and illustrated by Ryan T. Higgins (2015)

Bruce is a bear, a grumpy bear. The only thing in the whole world that Bruce likes is eggs. But one day, while preparing a new goose egg recipe, his eggs hatch! Now Bruce has 4 annoying goslings calling him ‘mama’. Bruce tries to return them to Mother Goose, but she has already flown south for the winter. He tries leaving them in the nest anyway, but they follow him home. Now Bruce is stuck. He keeps them through the winter, spring, and summer, and the next fall he talks to them about migration. But the now grown geese don’t want to leave. He tries everything he can think of, eventually, he takes them south to Miami himself. Now Bruce and the geese spend every winter on the beach.



Ah, the beach, sounds good to me. But like Bruce, I don’t know if I want to spend it with four geese! Poor Bruce, he seems to be unappreciated and misunderstood. But at least the geese love him.

Bruce really only likes eggs. Is there a food that your child will eat exclusively or refuses to eat? Try a few egg recipes I’m sure Bruce would love!
