The Other Day I Met a Bear

by John M. Feierabend

© 2014 GIA.

Illustrated by Julia Love Miller

The beloved echo song The Other Day I Met a Bear is stunningly illustrated in the latest installment of John M. Feierabend's series of picture books based on our great folk music heritage. This delightful song functions both as an echo song and a songtale.

You will love how the one who “Met” a Bear is a playful Fox. The two new friends have a great time running around in a friendly game of chase.  Without changing any words, Julia Miller’s creative setting is a playful romp, or a game of tag. The fox and bear had a great day of fun. The last stanza of the song: “This is the end, there is not more, Unless I see, that bear once more,” lets us know that even through the play is done for the day, they will likely reunite in the future for even more fun! 

Like the other picture books in John M. Feierabend's First Steps in Music series, The Other Day I Met a Bear includes a description of the history of the song, the notation of the song, and a link to download the song in audio form at no cost. The audio version is available both with singing and as an accompaniment only.

 

John M. Feierabend has spent decades compiling songs and rhymes from the memories of the American people in the hopes that these treasures will be preserved for future generations. Dr. Feierabend is a national leader in the field of early childhood education and currently serves as a professor and chair of the Music Education Department at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford.

Julia Love Miller is an illustrator from Saratoga Springs, NY. Her parents, grandmother, and older brother have been creative inspirations for her, encouraging her to expand her artistic skills since she was young. She enjoys nature and fantastical worlds and often incorporates the two into her artwork.
