The Tejas Star Award committee has selected Achiss! by Shennen Bersani for their annual reading list. This is the debut picture book both authored and illustrated by Shennen Bersani, and the first award for a Spanish edition of an Arbordale Book.
The story begins with Baby Bear waking up to a cloud of pollen after hibernation. After a sneezy start Baby Bear ends up learning why pollen is good for everyone, even a bear, from his forest friends. The realistic, yet adorable illustrations are in Bersani's signature style and help kids understand why pollen is so important.
