TORONTO, Ont. - The surge in popularity of adult coloring books has shown us that coloring is no longer just for kids. The Way of the Bear is a new approach to publishing that proves coloring books don't need to be labeled either "adult" or "kids" when it can be for both. A delightful story that both kids and adults will enjoy, this book blends juvenile fiction with an equal split of children's and adult coloring book illustrations and merges them into one complete package: a family coloring storybook.

The Way of the Bear is a book about the sacred relationship between giving and receiving with gratitude. As the Mother Bear teaches her cubs the importance of being thankful to the Salmon People, the reader is shown how necessary respect is for true gratitude. The Mother wants to give her cubs “important things” about which to think and the reader is asked to take that same journey. Learning to love and respect salmon is the beginning of understanding how food and spirituality are related.

Kathy Roberts is a writer who lives in one of the prairie states, under skies that go on forever and sunsets that will take your breath away. Sharing this flat Eden with her are three dogs, one cat, four horses and a very understanding significant other. She publishes her short stories on The Mindful Word and is currently working on a novel to be finished in 2017.

Dawn Collins comes from a long line of free-spirited, creative women who taught her to believe in hope, to chase down dreams and see beauty everywhere. As she puts it, "Art is in my genes. It's not what I do, it's who I am and I love it." The intention behind her art: "I want my art to bring the viewer peace, love and happiness. I want to encourage the dreams and smiles and whimsy that sometimes gets bogged down under life.
