Dear Reader, Love Linda Karimo

Dear Reader…

Are you a parent, grandparent, or another child caregiver?


You may have come to this blog to find some reading materials to share with your children. It should not be very violent because the kids are playing enough games that go down that road.


I've published the first book, Baby Bear's Spaghetti Misadventure, in the series, Very Short Misadventure Stories for Kids and Bears, K-1. You and your child will be transported into a world of bears, generally lovely bears that mimic your life here on human earth. Of course, there is no Pandemic.


Let me explain further. Mama Bear and Baby Bear live in a modest cave with a kitchen window and a cave door just like those that you are familiar with. The family lives in Bear Town, in Bear USA, on Bear Earth. Next year Baby Bear will be going to Big Boy School named Bear Elementary School.


Baby Bear is a preschooler in this first book. He is cute and cuddly. My illustrator really shows the child's emotions very well. Baby Bear doesn't always listen to Mama Bear, and this is the theme of this book. I am hopeful that his non-threatening presence will capture the hearts of your kids. In this instance, you might say to your child, "See what happened when Baby Bear didn't listen to Mama Bear."


This first book in the series will be followed closely by Baby Bear's Big Boy School Misadventure: The Unnerving First Day. In early 2021 the third and fourth books, Baby Bear Doesn't Share, and Baby Bear Learns to Share, will be published on Amazon.


My Mama Bear character is stern when she needs to be, but very loving and considerate of her Baby Bear son. She loves to cook, and Baby Bear loves to eat. Mama Bear wears an apron with the words, "Cooking with Mama Bear."

Do you think that she might be writing a cookbook?


If you find that this book appeals to you, I am considering creating an email club for young children's parents/guardians. There will be contests and lots of fun stuff in store for members.


Stay safe and be well.

See you inside the Baby Bear books.

About the Author

Back in the Stone Age, well maybe not that far back…

When Linda Karimo was very young, she learned to read at the knee of her Irish immigrant grandmother. Nannie, as she was known to the family, was just learning English herself.

They read all the classic children’s stories together. There was one in particular that became the inspiration for Linda’s current series of children’s books.

Moving forward, Linda was always a ravenous reader. She would often read all the books by a given author and then go onto yet another great fiction author. Espionage, legal, medical, suspense, and some “who done it” were her game.

Her day job as a Copywriter paid the bills while she dreamed of writing an extraordinary series of children’s books.

So, what childhood story prompted Linda to write a series about those characters?

It was Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Linda’s nickname was always Goldilocks.

She transports her readers into the world of bears whose lives are not much different than humans, just bear style.

She has a conversational style of writing and wants her readers to feel a part of the action taking place, not just looking through the window watching it all going by.

A Lifetime full of love and compassion!

Mama Bear gave him the look.

He did it again.
