"But what about sneakers, should I wear some of those
While I'm running around so I don't stub my toes?"
"No, silly bear--listen to me, please:
To go run around you don't need galoshes or skis.
"You just need some feet and some fur in the breeze
And some grass and some sunlight, and maybe some trees.
"For a bear's foot should be barefoot; it's really the best way
For a bear to run around on a honey-sunny day."
As far as I can tell, it's the first children's book for barefoot runners (which is ridiculous, since most children are barefoot runners). The illustrations are being finished as I write by an extremely talented young artist whom I intend to take credit for discovering. I'm going to self-publish in e-book and print formats through Amazon so I don't have an exact publication date yet but as soon as it's ready I'll let you folks know. Stay tuned!
